520    The Bush administration detained and tortured suspected 
       terrorists; the Obama administration assassinates them. 
       Assassination, or targeted killing, off the battlefield 
       not only causes more resentment against the United States,
       it is also illegal. In this interdisciplinary collection, 
       human rights and political activists, policy analysts, 
       lawyers and legal scholars, a philosopher, a journalist, 
       and a sociologist examine different aspects of the U.S. 
       policy of targeted killing with drones and other methods. 
       It explores the legality, morality and geopolitical 
       considerations of targeted killing and resulting civilian 
       casualties, and evaluates the impact on relations between 
       the United States and affected countries. The book 
       includes the documentation of civilian casualties by the 
       leading non-governmental organization in this area; 
       stories of civilians victimized by drones; an analysis of 
       the first U.S. targeted killing lawsuit by the lawyer who 
       brought the case; a discussion of the targeted killing 
       cases in Israel by the director of PCATI which filed one 
       of the lawsuits; the domestic use of drones; and the 
       immorality of drones using Just War principles.
