Financial Times: books of the year, 2009

The critics at the Financial Times picked their best books of 2009.

One title on the list:
Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century
by PW Singer

The definitive work on a killer subject: the role of robots in war. More than 12,000 warbots have already been deployed in Iraq, yet there are no agreed frameworks for accountability when things go wrong. Singer’s riveting and terrifying account covers all sides, from historical to ethical.
