About this title


A BBC correspondent provides a troubling look at top-secret weapons research around the world, detailing the development of a new generations of weaponry--including robot soldiers, electromagnetic guns, lasers, and genetically altered algae--and their implications for world peace. 17,500 first printing.


The next time Tom Clancy writes a techno-thriller, he will want to have this book by his side. David Shukman, a defense correspondent for the BBC, shows how the military may take full advantage of the information age over the next 30 years. Electronics, computers, miniaturization, automation, and genetic engineering will all play a role in future conflict, he writes. Tomorrow's War covers the somewhat mundane (improved missile targeting) as well as the seemingly improbable (ant-sized robots). And throughout this well-written book is an implicit argument for why we will still need advanced weapons in the 21st century.
