This very powerful and disturbing book opens up a host of deeply problematic interconnections between humans and machines, war and climate catastrophe, formal and informal warfare, law and vision and blindness. The authors and commentators, who have coordinated their work over some considerable time, bring an exceptionally original and complementary set of approaches to their topic. To speak of impact would be crass, but this major contribution to social theory deserves to attract a good deal of attention. -- William Outhwaite, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, Newcastle University
