The Good Drone by Kristin Bergtora Sandvik,Maria Gabrielsen Jumbert Book Summary:
While the military use of drones has been the subject of much scrutiny, the use of drones for humanitarian purposes has so far received little attention. As the starting point for this study, it is argued that the prospect of using drones for humanitarian and other life-saving activities has produced an alternative discourse on drones, dedicated to developing and publicizing the endless possibilities that drones have for "doing good". Furthermore, it is suggested that the Good Drone narrative has been appropriated back into the drone warfare discourse, as a strategy to make war "more human". This book explores the role of the Good Drone as an organizing narrative for political projects, technology development and humanitarian action. Its contribution to the debate is to take stock of the multiple logics and rationales according to which drones are "good", with a primary objective to initiate a critical conversation about the political currency of "good". This study recognizes the many possibilities for the use of drones and takes these possibilities seriously by critically examining the difference the drones' functionalities can make, but also what difference the presence of drones themselves – as unmanned and flying objects – make. Discussed and analysed are the implications for the drone industry, user communities, and the areas of crisis where drones are deployed.
Drone Warfare by Medea Benjamin Book Summary:
Drone Warfare is the first comprehensive analysis of one of the fastest growing—and most secretive—fronts in global conflict: the rise of robot warfare. In 2000, the Pentagon had fewer than fifty aerial drones; ten years later, it had a fleet of nearly 7,500, and the US Air Force now trains more drone “pilots” than bomber and fighter pilots combined. Drones are already a $5 billion business in the US alone. The human cost? Drone strikes have killed more than 200 children alone in Pakistan and Yemen. CODEPINK and Global Exchange cofounder Medea Benjamin provides the first extensive analysis of who is producing the drones, where they are being used, who controls these unmanned planes, and what are the legal and moral implications of their use. In vivid, readable style, this book also looks at what activists, lawyers, and scientists across the globe are doing to ground these weapons. Benjamin argues that the assassinations we are carrying out from the air will come back to haunt us when others start doing the same thing—to us. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Future of Drone Use by Bart Custers Book Summary:
Given the popularity of drones and the fact that they are easy and cheap to buy, it is generally expected that the ubiquity of drones will significantly increase within the next few years. This raises questions as to what is technologically feasible (now and in the future), what is acceptable from an ethical point of view and what is allowed from a legal point of view. Drone technology is to some extent already available and to some extent still in development. The aim and scope of this book is to map the opportunities and threats associated with the use of drones and to discuss the ethical and legal issues of the use of drones. This book provides an overview of current drone technologies and applications and of what to expect in the next few years. The question of how to regulate the use of drones in the future is addressed, by considering conditions and contents of future drone legislation and by analyzing issues surrounding privacy and safeguards that can be taken. As such, this book is valuable to scholars in several disciplines, such as law, ethics, sociology, politics and public administration, as well as to practitioners and others who may be confronted with the use of drones in their work, such as professionals working in the military, law enforcement, disaster management and infrastructure management. Individuals and businesses with a specific interest in drone use may also find in the nineteen contributions contained in this volume unexpected perspectives on this new field of research and innovation. Bart Custers is Associate Professor and Head of Research at eLaw, the Center for Law and Digital Technologies at Leiden University, The Netherlands. He has presented his work at international conferences in the United States, China, Japan, the Middle East and throughout Europe and has published over 80 scientific, professional and popularizing publications, including three books.
Drone Operator by Alix Wood Book Summary:
Drones are frequently associated with spies and the military, but the truth is that they are used for many other purposes--animal observation, disaster surveillance, and filmmaking, for example! As the uses for drones and need for skilled operators rises, this is a field that is proving itself to be increasingly challenging, exciting, and fun.
Drone Warfare by Dave Sloggett Book Summary:
The Development of Unmanned Aerial Conflict will examine the development and use of aerial drones, a topical subject that has not been written on to date.An unmanned aerial vehicle, commonly known as a drone, is an aircraft without a human pilot on board. Its flight is either controlled autonomously by computers in the vehicle, or under the remote control of a navigator or pilot on the ground or in another vehicle.Blending history with current and recent operations, Dr Sloggett will set out to put the record straight. In some quarters of the press drones get a bad press and there has been much controversy over their deployment, some of which is not deserved.The book reveals the history of unmanned aircraft, their recent development and why they have emerged onto the scene. Why did the US, for example, really invest highly in drone technology? When did all that start? What barriers had to be overcome? What was there before drones arrived?The book also analyses their operations in Iraq in Gulf War Two and more recently Afghanistan. What roles did drones play? Where they successful? What new developments emerged during operations? Did they save lives? Further to this is a detailed look at case studies where they have been used trying to remove some of the incorrect reporting – putting the record straight based on evidence. How many have been shot down and where?The book then looks at strategic uses of drones at present: Iran is being monitored; they are already in action over parts of Africa; what are other countries doing – China, Iran? Turkey?The RAF's use of drones, their deployment and operations is considered along with important questions such as where this goes for the future. What are the issues? Will all air forces be drone based in the future? What other applications may arise in the civilian market?
The Drone Wars of the 21st Century by Kristen Boon,Douglas C. Lovelace (Jr.) Book Summary:
Terrorism: Commentary on Security Documents is a series that provides primary source documents and expert commentary on various topics relating to the worldwide effort to combat terrorism. Among the documents collected are transcripts of Congressional testimony, reports by such federal government bodies as the Congressional Research Service (CRS) and the Government Accountability Office (GAO), United Nations Security Council resolutions, reports and investigations by the United Nations Secretary-General and other dedicated UN bodies, and case law from the U.S. and around the globe covering issues related to terrorism. Most volumes focus on a single theme, and inside each volume the documents usually appear within topic-based categories. The series also includes a subject index and other indices that guide the user through this complex area of the law. Volume 133, The Drone Wars of the 21st Century: Costs and Benefits, examines the complex issues raised by the use of unmannedaerial vehicles, or drones, in lieu of more conventional military capabilities. Professor Douglas C. Lovelace, Jr., who provides the introductory commentary for this volume, has selected ten documents that provide invaluable insights into the various aspects of this topic. These documents examine such issues as the legality, constitutionality, and ethics of the current use of drones by the United States, including the targeting and killing of U.S. citizens abroad. The long-term efficacy of U.S. reliance on drone usage as a counterterrorism tactic is also considered, as are the challenges involved for the United States in limiting the proliferation of drone technology through export controls and diplomatic efforts.
International Law and Drone Strikes in Pakistan by Sikander Ahmed Shah Book Summary:
While conventional warfare has an established body of legal precedence, the legality of drone strikes by the United States in Pakistan and elsewhere remains ambiguous. This book explores the legal and political issues surrounding the use of drones in Pakistan. Drawing from international treaty law, customary international law, and statistical data on the impact of the strikes, Sikander Ahmed Shah asks whether drone strikes by the United States in Pakistan are in compliance with international humanitarian law. The book questions how international law views the giving of consent between States for military action, and explores what this means for the interaction between sovereignty and consent. The book goes on to look at the socio-political realities of drone strikes in Pakistan, scrutinizing the impact of drone strikes on both Pakistani politics and US-Pakistan relationships. Topics include the Pakistan army-government relationship, the evolution of international institutions as a result of drone strikes, and the geopolitical dynamics affecting the region. As a detailed and critical examination of the legal and political challenges presented by drone strikes, this book will be essential to scholars and students of the law of armed conflict, security studies, political science and international relations.
Opposing Perspectives on the Drone Debate by B. Strawser,L. Hajjar,S. Levine,F. Naqvi,J. Witt Book Summary:
Does the lethal use of drones pose any new or difficult moral problems? Or is the controversy over these weapons merely a distraction from deeper questions regarding the justice of war and the United States' bellicose foreign policy? Opposing Perspectives on the Drone Debate pulls no punches in answering these questions as five scholars square off in a lively debate over the ethics of drones and their contentious use in a point-counterpoint debate. The contributing authors are some of the foremost thinkers in international affairs today, spanning the disciplines of philosophy, sociology, political science, and law. Topics debated range from the US's contested policy of so-called "targeted killing" in Pakistan's tribal regions to fears over the damaging effects such weaponry has on our democratic institutions to the more abstract moral questions raised by killing via remote control such as the duty to capture over kill.
The Drone Enigma by Ron McManus Book Summary:
Jake Palmer accepts an offer from a defense contractor and his former SEAL teammate to consult with the company on the death of an engineer assigned to the top secret Perseus Project—the development of the navigation and targeting systems for an experimental Navy drone. Two days into the case, Palmer finds Jansen shot dead in his office and vows to bring his killer to justice. What he discovers convinces him that both deaths are related to the project and that someone within the company is working with terrorists to seize control of the drone during a live fire test in Afghanistan. With no hard evidence to support his theory, he is unable to persuade either the company or the military that an imminent threat exists. After he falls under suspicion, his contract is terminated and the police are called in. Pursued by the police and headed for engagement with a large, well armed terrorist cell led by the company insider, Palmer is close to defeat when he receives help from the most unlikely person. With only hours to spare, they race to stop an attack half a world away. The Drone Enigma will keep you on the edge of your seat and make you question every news story about drones.

Ergo: The Drone by Jeremy R Dooley Book Summary:
Miles Dawson is a young '9t9' drone pilot covertly fighting the mighty Emerson Corporation from within. As Earth marches toward world war, his battle against a plot to enslave humanity with an alien device takes him to the corporation's island, the former USA, and into space. It’s 2054, and the dystopian Earth is crumbling in chaos. Only the artificial floating island of Haven holds fast against the corruption outside its borders--or does it? Convinced that the once-noble endeavor of the island’s founder David Emerson has now run amiss, an ancient resistance cell dedicated to individual freedom recruits Miles Dawson, an ambitious young 9t9 drone pilot from within the corporate state to covertly unravel the plans of the power-hungry leader. What these exact plans are, the group is uncertain at first. On his quest to uncover and destroy the threat, though, Miles finds his allegiance torn between himself, the friends he has counted on, and the Emerson Corporation that has always been a part of his life. As Earth marches toward world war, his battle against the plot, codenamed Ergo, leads him to a mysterious alien device and takes him from the corporation's island, to the former USA, and into space onboard the corporation owned exploration vessel ECS Wallace. The deeper he gets, the more Miles realizes he can’t get out--and wonders if he wants to. In his inability to quit, he learns much more about his friends, himself, and his ties to the corporate leader than he could ever imagine. Full of reshaped nations, alien races, and new technologies, this first book of the Ergo series, Ergo: the Drone, provides the reader imagination and suspense through Dawson’s on-going adventures while painting a vivid projection of our world in the not-too-distant future as various economic, political, and religious forces around the globe begin to collide.

The Drone Incident by Martin Kaynan Book Summary:
When Al Qaeda believes their repeated failure to replicate 9/11 is due to eavesdropping by the NSA, they devise a diabolical scheme to destroy the agency by crashing a plane into it. The Sleeper Cell Drone chronicles a few hours of a charter flight, carrying an NFL football team, bound for Washington D.C. with an autopilot that takes control of the plane from the flight crew. They communicate with Boeing's autopilot experts to create a plan requiring the temporary suspension of all power to deactivate the automatic pilot by disabling the GPS. Time is critical before fighter jets from Andrews Air Force base shoot it down, or the autopilot's program takes the plane directly into the center of a violent electrical storm.

Drone Theory by Grégoire Chamayou Book Summary:
Drone Theory is Gregoire Chamayou's poignant and sharply argued polemic against US drone warfare. In 2011 alone, the US deployed one drone strike every four days in Pakistan. Drone Theory is a rigorous polemic against the increasing use of robot warfare around the world. Drawing on philosophical debate, moral lessons from Greek mythology and transcripts of conversations between drone operators, Drone Theory re-evaluates the socio-political impact of drone warfare on the world - and its people. Chamayou takes us through Nevada, Pakistan and arresting philosophical terrain to reveal how drones are changing the landscape of war theory and to highlight the profound moral implications of our own silence in the face of drone warfare. Born in 1976, Grégoire Chamayou is a philosopher at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Paris and the author of Les corps vils and Manhunts: A Philosophical History. Chamayou also lectures at Université de Paris Ouest, and has written for Le Monde Diplomatique among other publications. Janet Lloyd has translated over seventy books from French to English and has twice been awarded the Scott Moncrieff prize.
