Drones and Terrorism: Asymmetric Warfare and the Threat to Global Security

Availability: Ready to download

In warzones, ordinary commercially-available drones are used for extraordinary reconnaissance and information gathering. They can also be used for bombings-a drone carrying an explosive charge is potentially a powerful weapon.

They can also be used for bombings-a drone carrying an explosive charge is potentially a powerful weapon. At the same time asymmetric warfare has become the norm-with large states increasingly fighting marginal terrorist groups in the Middle East and elsewhere. Here, Nicholas Grossman shows how we are entering the age of the drone terrorist-groups such as Hezbollah are already using them in the Middle East. Grossman will analyse the ways in which the United States, Israel and other advanced militaries use aerial drones and ground-based robots to fight non-state actors (e.g. ISIS, al Qaeda, the Iraqi and Afghan insurgencies, Hezbollah, Hamas, etc.) and how these groups, as well as individual terrorists, are utilizing less advanced commercially-available drones to fight powerful state opponents. Robotics has huge implications for the future of security, terrorism and international relations and this will be essential reading on the subject of terrorism and drone warfare.

    As a layman with a mild prior interest in drone warfare I found this to be an interesting primer on how drones are used by both US and insurgent forces. Drone missile strikes make the news often though as Grossman argues effectively the information gathering and analysis possibilities are what makes drones a transformative technology. The book is quite academic and I would recommend a strong interest in the subject matter.
