"Drones are everywhere we want to be - and many places we
don't. And everyone has them; so, defending against them matters.
In this feast of thought, authors address ranging from what they
are and how they are used - to the morality and legality of their
employment. Much to ponder." - Martin Libicki, author of
Cyberspace in Peace and War, DVP US Naval Academy
"The author has provided a fascinating view of the history and development of the UAV and looked at the many issues surrounding these vehicles. This is a book that should be read because it deals with matters that have not received the exposure and debate they merit." - FIRE Reviews
"A unique and seminal work of extraordinary merit, One Nation Under Drones: Legality, Morality, and Utility of Unmanned Combat Systems is unreservedly recommended for community, college, university, and governmental library Aviation History collections in general, and Contemporary Drone supplement studies reading lists in particular." - Midwest Book Review
