Drone Nation unveils an unexpected scenario where international drone warfare leads to a state of permanent war through increasing numbers of assassinations of the western world's declared enemies. It provides historical context for the rise and acceptance of drone warfare and examines likely future impacts. The book discusses the broad political-economic forces at play in the United States. Topics include US strategic traditions, domestic political institutions, military-industrial complex, intra-military pressures, think tanks, media, and international law. The authors argue that social progress is not necessarily continuous. While there was widespread social and economic progress from the 1950s through 1970s in the United States, the country is now in a period of economic and political regression. The rise of drone warfare, and the domestic use of drones, is partly to blame. This gradual and important change signals a major departure from the traditional embrace of international law, military ethics, and domestic privacy.

This refreshing and frank exploration of the sudden rise of drones in warfare and commerce raises all the right questions, and does so with critical elan rare in public discourse. The authors do so with clarity and insight that bring alive the complex issues technologies pose. Their sensible admonition is to thoroughly debate the use of drones before they become normal-that is, before it's too late to chart a different course. -- John Tirman, MIT A very readable critical account of the political and economic issues surrounding drones and their impact on future warfare. -- Martin Shaw, emeritus, University of Sussex
