Krishnan describes military applications of neuroscience research and emerging neurotechnology with relevance to the conduct of armed conflict and law enforcement. This work builds upon literature by scholars such as Moreno and Giordano and fills an existing gap, not only in terms of reviewing available and future neurotechnologies and relevant applications, but by discussing how the military pursuit of these technologies fits into the overall strategic context. The first to sketch future neurowarfare by looking at its potentials as well as its inherent limitations, this book’s main theme is how military neuroscience will enhance and possibly transform both classical psychological operations and cyber warfare. Its core argument is that nonlethal strategies and tactics could become central to warfare in the first half of the twenty-first century. This creates both humanitarian opportunities in making war less bloody and burdensome as well as some unprecedented threats and dangers in terms of preserving freedom of thought and will in a coming age where minds can be manipulated with great precision.

Given the political relevance of the topic of community and the apparent volatility of its meanings, it is necessary to take time and create spaces for contemplation. How can theories of community be usefully applied to various forms of cultural production? How do notions of communitas affect representations as well as critiques of society and social developments? Based on a selection of papers given at the biennial conference of the Swiss Association for North American Studies in late 2016, this collection approaches discourses on literary texts and other cultural products from such angles as age studies, popular seriality, sustainability, and ecocriticism. While focused on community in contemporary American Studies, the articles in this collection also take into account some of the developments and issues surrounding community at a moment of heightened sensitivity towards this topic beyond academia.

How does the use of military drones affect the legal, political, and moral responsibility of different actors involved in their deployment and design? This volume offers a fresh contribution to the ethics of drone warfare by providing, for the first time, a systematic interdisciplinary discussion of different responsibility issues raised by military drones. The book discusses four main sets of questions: First, from a legal point of view, we analyse the ways in which the use of drones makes the attribution of criminal responsibility to individuals for war crimes more complicated and what adjustments may be required in international criminal law and in military practices to avoid ’responsibility gaps’ in warfare. From a moral and political perspective, the volume looks at the conditions under which the use of military drones by states is impermissible, permissible, or even obligatory and what the responsibilities of a state in the use of drones towards both its citizens and potential targets are. From a socio-technical perspective, what kind of new human machine interaction might (and should) drones bring and which new kinds of shared agency and responsibility? Finally, we ask how the use of drones changes our conception of agency and responsibility. The book will be of interest to scholars and students in (military) ethics and to those in law, politics and the military involved in the design, deployment and evaluation of military drones.

„Cartea de față vine în momentul potrivit. Țările europene și societățile lor trec printr-o fază de dezorientare, uneori chiar de dezbinare. Fake news reprezintă termenul-cheie, o unealtă puternică în mâna celor care râvnesc să slăbească sistemele democratice de tip occidental. Matrioșka mincinoșilor propune cititorului o interpretare critică a unei epoci tulburi și îi înlesnește înțelegerea mecanismelor mediatice și politice care stăpânesc lumea de astăzi. Cartea se bazează pe o vastă bibliografie internațională și ajută cititorul român să plaseze dezvoltările politice din România într-un context mai larg. Interpretarea impresionează mai ales prin anvergura analizei și prin spiritul civic – cel mai bun antidot împotriva forțelor iliberale.“ (Oliver Jens Schmitt) „Cartea lui Marian Voicu este o demonstraţie impecabilă, pasionantă şi minuţioasă. Ea oferă imaginea unui moment istoric şi reconstituie modul în care Rusia lui Putin poartă un război împotriva Occidentului şi valorilor sale, exercitând totodată un control totalitar şi asupra propriei societăţi. Nimic nu este inocent sau întâmplător în această elaborată operaţiune de manipulare globală. România este, la rândul ei, parte din acest nou război subteran, în care luciditatea devine o formă de patriotism. Textul lui Marian Voicu reactivează, în acest univers de clone şi minciuni, busola simţului critic.“ (Ioan Stanomir) Fake news au devenit motorul unei noi realităţi, expresia unei noi epoci – cea a postadevărului. Campaniile de fake news sunt gândite pentru a semăna neîncredere şi confuzie, pentru a adânci faliile socio-culturale folosind tensiunile etnice, rasiale şi religioase. Studiile ştiinţifice demonstrează că expunerea la fake news, dezinformare sau teorii ale conspiraţiei duce la alterarea percepţiei şi luarea unor decizii în consecinţă. Dieta informaţională zilnică este din ce în ce mai dificilă – ce e adevărat şi ce e fals în jur? Cine e arbitrul adevărului? Fiecare poate crede ce vrea, îşi poate construi realitatea pe care o doreşte, din informaţiile pe care le selectează. Suntem alimentaţi cu fake news care ne sunt livrate de motoare informaţionale uriaşe. Reţelele sociale au devenit reţele ale radicalizării sociale, iar știrile fake se răspândesc asemenea unei bacterii sau unui virus, infestând corpul social sănătos. (Marian Voicu)

Alles beginnt mit einem mysteriösen Päckchen, das an Neurologen auf der ganzen Welt verschickt wird. Es enthält ein unheimliches Buch, eine Nachricht, aber keinen Absender! Alle sind sich einig: Hier ist ein Psychopath am Werk! Jon Ronson versucht, das Rätsel zu lösen, und begibt sich auf eine filmreife Mission, die so wahr wie gruselig ist. Seine Recherche führt ihn zu »Tony«, einem verurteilten Mörder und diagnostizierten Psychopathen, der beteuert, einer Fehldiagnose zum Opfer gefallen zu sein. Jon wird auf seiner Reise schnell klar, wo sich die meisten Psychopathen aufhalten: Sie bewegen sich inmitten der Gesellschaft, sie sitzen an den Schalthebeln der Macht, sind Firmenbosse, Politiker und spielen in der Finanzwelt eine führende Rolle - kurzum: Sie lenken sogar unsere Gesellschaft.
