The Drone Debate: A Primer on the U.S. Use of Unmanned Aircraft Outside Conventional Battlefields by Avery Plaw & Matthew S. Fricker & Carlos Colon

The Drone Debate offers a thorough investigation of the where, why, how, and when of the United States?? use of UAVs. Beginning with a historical overview of the use of drones in warfare, it then addresses whether targeted killing operations are strategically wise, whether they are permissible under international law, and the related ethical issues. It also looks at the political factors behind the use of drones, including domestic and global attitudes toward their use and potential issues of proliferation and escalation. Finally, the use of drones by other countries, such as Israel and China, is examined. Each chapter features a case study that highlights particular incidents and patterns of operation in specific regions, including Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan, and Libya and strike types (signature strikes, personality strikes, etc.).
