Drone Warfare : Killing by Remote Control, Paperback / softback Book

Drone Warfare : Killing by Remote Control Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Drone Warfare is the first comprehensive analysis of one of the fastest- growing - and most secretive - fronts in global war: the rise of robot warfare.

In 2000, the Pentagon had fewer than fifty aerial drones; ten years later, it had nearly 7,500.

Drones are already a $5 billion business in the US alone; the US Air Force now trains more drone "pilots" than bomber and fighter pilots combined.

Medea Benjamin provides the first extensive analysis of who is producing the drones, where they are being used, who pilots these unmanned planes, and what are the legal and moral implications.

In vivid, readable style, the book also looks at what activists, lawyers, and scientists across the globe are doing to ground these weapons.

Benjamin argues that the assassinations we are carrying out from the air will come back to haunt us when others start doing the same thing - to us.
