Future of War (Blackwell Manifestos)by Christopher Coker
Synopses & Reviews
In this book, Professor Christopher Coker presents an original and controversial thesis about the future of war.
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.
