    What People are Saying About This

    Philip D. Beidler

    'Tim Blackmore's War X is a groundbreaking, mind-altering book: an expose of runaway government and corporate militarism, and the dehumanising affect of military technology. With stunning clarity, energy, intelligence, technological mastery, human understanding, and expositional elegance, what Blackmore describes is not the future; it is the present — and the vision is both hypnotic and chilling. War X should be required reading for every citizen whose country participates in the global culture of militarism and twenty-first-century weapons development. I just can't say how much my own eyes were opened and my own mind was blown by this book.'
