About this book

Governing Military Technologies in the 21st Century is one of the first books to tackle the big five technological threats all in one place: nanotech, robotics, cyberwar, human enhancement, and, non-lethal weapons, weaving a historical, legal, and sociopolitical fabric into a discussion of their development, deployment, and, potential regulation.

Reviews

"This is a timely, considered, and important book. I highly recommend it." - Braden Allenby, Arizona State University, USA

"The international community is increasingly concerned about new war technologies and their implications for ethics and policy. While these discussions are occurring separately worldwide, this book brings together the many strands of discussion for an expert analysis under the lens of a highly respected military general." - Patrick Lin, California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, USA

"General O'Meara has written a remarkable book, brilliantly combining a keen sense of operational knowledge and expertise in the field with legal and moral analysis. A first-rate examination!" - Dr. George R. Lucas, Jr., Naval Postgraduate School, USA

"This is the first book I've seen that tackles the big five technological threats all in one place: nanotech, robotics, cyberwar, human enhancement, and, yes, non-lethal weapons, cleverly weaving a historical, legal, and sociopolitical fabric into a discussion of their development, deployment, and, hopefully, potential regulation." - Ron Arkin, Regents' Professor and Director of the Mobile Robot Laboratory, Associate Dean for Research and Space Planning, College of Computing, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA
