As I left the stage after giving a short talk about the military technologies used at USAF Croughton, I was asked if I would be prepared to write a chapter for a forthcoming book. I said, “Yes”. The reply, “Brilliant; can you get it to me in two weeks?”.

Published June 2014, ‘World in Chains’ focuses on a lack of respect for international humanitarian law and the integrity of a society able to act compassionately in the wider public interest.

It presses the need for the UK government to work on a global ban for nuclear weapons, and criticizes the militaristic mind-set that is currently dominating most societies as the cause of many catastrophic world problems.

The book is edited by Angie Zelter, and the essays cover a variety of topics:

The draft text of of my chapter, ‘Drones, cyberwarfare and democracy’, October 2013Drones, Cyberwarfare and Democracy, is available to download.

'USAF Croughton – Networked Warfare, and the Intelligence-Fusion Complex' (June 2018) I have subsequently written a new study that expands the themes of this chapter of the book –
USAF Croughton: Networked Warfare, and the Intelligence-Fusion Complex (June 2018).

I also write regularly on this subject, and give presentations, on behalf of CroughtonWatch.
