Future of War (Blackwell Manifestos)

by

Future of War (Blackwell Manifestos) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this book, Professor Christopher Coker presents an original and controversial thesis about the future of war.

  • Argues that the biotechnology revolution has given war a new lease of life.
  • Draws on thinkers from Hegel and Nietzsche to the postmodernists.
  • Refers to modern fiction and films.
  • Part of the prestigious Blackwell Manifestos series.

Synopsis:

Most commentators propose a nightmare vision of future warfare: a battlefield of drones and robots with no place for human intuition or will. In this book, Professor Christopher Coker presents a new and radically different view. New technology will free the warrior from the mass slaughterhouse of twentieth-century warfare, and soldiers will once again find their humanity on the field of battle.
