Excerpts from Book:

" The book begins with scientists testing a weapon that at least some of them believed was an "evil thing". In creating the hydrogen bomb, scientists engineered a weapon against which there is no defense.

 With regard to the thousands of hydrogen bombs in existence today, the US military relies on wishful optimism - hope that the civilization-destroyer is never unleashed.

The program was called "Killer Robots" and its motto offered prescient words. "The battlefield is no place for human beings."

The book ends with scientists inside the Pentagon working to create autonomous weapon systems, and with scientists outside the Pentagon working to spread the idea that these weapon systems are inherently evil things, that artificially intelligent hunter-killer robots can and will outsmart their human creators, and against which there will be no defense. "

(A comprehensive history of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) from its inception in 1958 to present time. Advanced Defense Science and Technology is a "Two Edged Damoclean Sword" which hangs over "usall" and the planet (for good/evil).
