Wired for War

Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century
by P.W. Singer

Very well written overview of the emerging technology. Despite being a few years old, you’ll still be impressed how far along the technology is. That said, the second half of analysis is a little light on examining the implications of these weapons of war as far as warfare goes. Instead tends to focus on the more popular ethical and social implications.

If you are even partially interested in this technology or the emerging debates over their civil and military use, this book is a must read.
