'Autonomous and remote weapons are the future of warfare, yet until now there has been surprisingly little reflection on their implications for world order. Utilizing international theory and keen insight into contemporary world politics, this impressive volume sheds new light on the system-wide effects of drones on the laws, norms, and practice of warfare, and sets an agenda that others will be obliged to follow.'-- Alex J. Bellamy, The University of Queensland, Australia'This superb collection of essays significantly advances our understanding of the consequences of drone warfare for global order.'--Stefan Borg, Swedish Defense University, Stockholm'This book is timely, insightful, and provocative-exactly what is needed to advance the drone warfare debate. The co-editors 'bridge the gap' between academia and the military by including chapters from the world's leading experts and practitioners of remote warfare. The authors' insights will help inform decisions of combat leaders across all-tactical, operational, and strategic-levels of war. Students at the War Colleges must read this book to adequately prepare for an era of robotics-enabled warfare.'--Barry McCaffrey, General Retired, U.S. Army'This important book adds significantly to our understanding of drone warfare in the contemporary era by marrying the contributors' substantial empirical knowledge with insights drawn from the so-called 'English School' approach to International Relations Theory. This results in a better appreciation of how drone warfare shapes, and is shaped by, the global social order, which English School scholars label international society. Some may consider this hyperbole. However, I also see signs of a change in the evolving phenomenon of drone warfare of perhaps similar magnitude to that of the nuclear revolution at the end of WWII, especially when paired with the related developments in artificial intelligence and cyber warfare. The cumulative effect of these developments may be profound and unsettling for international society, and this book offers a useful platform for thinking through these issues in a more systematic way.'-- Laust Schouenborg, University College London, UK
