Wired for War : The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century Paperback

5 out of 5 (1 rating)


In Wired for War, P. W. Singer explores the great-est revolution in military affairs since the atom bomb: the dawn of robotic warfare.

We are on the cusp of a massive shift in military technology that threatens to make real the stuff of I, Robot and The Terminator.

Blending historical evidence with interviews of an amaz-ing cast of characters, Singer shows how technology is changing not just how wars are fought, but also the politics, economics, laws, and the ethics that surround war itself.

Travelling from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan to modern-day "skunk works" in the midst of suburbia, Wired for War will tantalise a wide readership, from military buffs to policy wonks to gearheads.

Review by

Very informative on where robotics comes from, what trajectories might the innovation take, and the problems involved in that. A connoisseur at its best, with all the sort of argument-and-its-opposite that is typical in a topic in flux.
