This timely anthology examines the use of drones by the military, law enforcement, border patrol, and civilians. Articles condoning the use of drones in military engagements abroad are balanced with reportage of civilian deaths and resulting creation of more terrorists. Pieces touting the effectiveness of drones in domestic surveillance are countered by assertions that they violate Americans civil liberties. Opinions about the pros and cons of drone use in securing our borders, as well as the potential benefits and dangers of their commercial use, will add to readers deep understanding of this complex issue.
