Drones are changing the conduct of war. In Drone: Remote Control Warfare, Hugh Gusterson explores the significance of drone warfare from multiple perspectives, drawing on accounts by drone operators, victims of drone attacks, human rights activists, international lawyers, military thinkers, and more, as well as maps the “ethical slippage” over time in the Obama administration’s targeting practices. Foreign Affair calls the book “a thoughtful examination of the dilemmas this new weapon poses.”
