The specific use of drone warfare by President Obama and all the consequent controversies over ethics, law and sovereignty are examined. In this sense the overall intervention of this book will be to trace, explain and interrogate how this technology impacted upon decision making, strategy and political choices over countering and killing insurgents, terrorists and potential opponents of the West.conflicts.
