Ulrike writes:

"So many books on drones and “drone warfare” have been published in the last few years that a new drone book needs a good answer to the question “is there something new in it?”. Drones have become the hot topic in international relations and security studies, not least because of the substantial public interest in the matter. This has led to a plethora of news reports, newspaper articles, academic papers, and increasingly books, to be published in the last few years. Not all of them deserve to be read or reviewed. Drone Wars, Transforming Conflict, Law, and Policy, edited by New America’s Vice President Peter L. Bergen and New America Fellow and Professor at Arizona State University Daniel Rothenberg certainly deserves both."
