Acknowledgments Introduction PART I: BECOMING RESPONSIBLE 1. The Lust for War vs. The Lust for Judgment 2. A World Without Responsibility PART II: BEING IN EXILE, BEING AS EXILE 3. What's Wrong with (How We Think About) Torture? 4. Drone Operators, Cyber Warriors, and Prosthetic Gods 5. Of the Many Who Returned and Yet Were Dead Conclusion: Our Veterans, Ourselves Notes Bibliography Index
Arguing that the suffering of combatants is better understood through philosophy than psychology, as not trauma, but exile, this book investigates the experiences of torturers, UAV operators, cyberwarriors, and veterans to reveal not only the exile at the core of becoming a combatant, but the evasion from exile at the core of being a noncombatant.
