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 fi lls 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 fi ts into the overall strategic context. The fi rst 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 fi rst half of the
twenty- fi rst 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 usher in a coming age where minds can be
manipulated with great precision.
