During America's most divisive war, both the Union and Confederacy took advantage of brave and courageous women willing to adventurously support their causes.

As stated on the grave marker of Union spy Elizabeth Van Lew: "She risked everything...

This is a masterful account of how people in the United States and around the world worked to abolish war as a legitimate act of state policy and won in 1928, outlawing war with a treaty that is still on the books.

P. W. Singer has fashioned a definitive text on the future of war around the subject of robots. In no previous book have I gotten such an intrinsic sense of what the military future will be like. -Robert D. Kaplan, author of Imperial Grunts: The American Military on the Ground. Singer's book is as important (very) as it is readable (highly), as much a fascinating account of new technology as it is a challenging appraisal of the strategic, political and ethical questions that we must now face. This book needs to be widely read --...
