Publisher Description

“[Singer's] enthusiasm becomes infectious . . . Wired for War is a book of its time: this is strategy for the Facebook generation.” —Foreign Affairs

“An engrossing picture of a new class of weapon that may revolutionize future wars. . .” —Kirkus Reviews

P. W. Singer explores the great­est revolution in military affairs since the atom bomb: the dawn of robotic warfare


We are on the cusp of a massive shift in military technology that threatens to make real the stuff of I, Robot and The Terminator. Blending historical evidence with interviews of an amaz­ing cast of characters, Singer shows how technology is changing not just how wars are fought, but also the politics, economics, laws, and the ethics that surround war itself. Travelling from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan to modern-day "skunk works" in the midst of suburbia, Wired for War will tantalise a wide readership, from military buffs to policy wonks to gearheads.

Inspiring book

Singer is an amazing author, this book is amazing and eye opening to just how close we really are to a future where robots are completely integrated into our lives. No waiting 400 years for DATA to be built. More like 30 years!
