Sometimes, all that is needed to change someone's mind is a change of perspective. Flying cameras, freed from the constraints of gravity, redefine how we perceive the world we live in and reveal previously unseen moments of beauty. Very rarely does a new technology level a playing field in an art form, allowing unknown talents to share headlines with established artists. Drones are one of these great equalizers. With this book, we are shining a spotlight on some of the world's best aerial photography. We examine not just the works of well-known aerial photographers, but also the many phenomenal images captured by non-professionals. The subjects of those showcased range from a volcanic eruption to the abstract patterns of fish farms as seen from above, and from never-before-seen views of Patagonia to powerful impressions of the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. Above the World is an ode to the beauty of the aerial image as it can be seen and captured by anyone. Let yourself be inspired.

Miles Dawson is a young '9t9' drone pilot covertly fighting the mighty Emerson Corporation from within. As Earth marches toward world war, his battle against a plot to enslave humanity with an alien device takes him to the corporation's island, the former USA, and into space. It’s 2054, and the dystopian Earth is crumbling in chaos. Only the artificial floating island of Haven holds fast against the corruption outside its borders--or does it? Convinced that the once-noble endeavor of the island’s founder David Emerson has now run amiss, an ancient resistance cell dedicated to individual freedom recruits Miles Dawson, an ambitious young 9t9 drone pilot from within the corporate state to covertly unravel the plans of the power-hungry leader. What these exact plans are, the group is uncertain at first. On his quest to uncover and destroy the threat, though, Miles finds his allegiance torn between himself, the friends he has counted on, and the Emerson Corporation that has always been a part of his life. As Earth marches toward world war, his battle against the plot, codenamed Ergo, leads him to a mysterious alien device and takes him from the corporation's island, to the former USA, and into space onboard the corporation owned exploration vessel ECS Wallace. The deeper he gets, the more Miles realizes he can’t get out--and wonders if he wants to. In his inability to quit, he learns much more about his friends, himself, and his ties to the corporate leader than he could ever imagine. Full of reshaped nations, alien races, and new technologies, this first book of the Ergo series, Ergo: the Drone, provides the reader imagination and suspense through Dawson’s on-going adventures while painting a vivid projection of our world in the not-too-distant future as various economic, political, and religious forces around the globe begin to collide.

How perceptual technologies have shaped the history of war from the Renaissance to the present From ubiquitous surveillance to drone strikes that put “warheads onto foreheads,” we live in a world of globalized, individualized targeting. The perils are great. In The Eye of War, Antoine Bousquet provides both a sweeping historical overview of military perception technologies and a disquieting lens on a world that is, increasingly, one in which anything or anyone that can be perceived can be destroyed—in which to see is to destroy. Arguing that modern-day global targeting is dissolving the conventionally bounded spaces of armed conflict, Bousquet shows that over several centuries, a logistical order of militarized perception has come into ascendancy, bringing perception and annihilation into ever-closer alignment. The efforts deployed to evade this deadly visibility have correspondingly intensified, yielding practices of radical concealment that presage a wholesale disappearance of the customary space of the battlefield. Beginning with the Renaissance’s fateful discovery of linear perspective, The Eye of War discloses the entanglement of the sciences and techniques of perception, representation, and localization in the modern era amid the perpetual quest for military superiority. In a survey that ranges from the telescope, aerial photograph, and gridded map to radar, digital imaging, and the geographic information system, Bousquet shows how successive technological systems have profoundly shaped the history of warfare and the experience of soldiering. A work of grand historical sweep and remarkable analytical power, The Eye of War explores the implications of militarized perception for the character of war in the twenty-first century and the place of human subjects within its increasingly technical armature.
