Gr 6 Up—This series examines the history and future of drones. Security and Surveillance Drones explains how drones are used for search and rescue efforts, law enforcement, and border patrol, as well as for journalism. Military Drones reveals the good and the bad—these drones can keep military personnel safe, but they don't necessarily reduce civilian casualties. Delivery Drones and Medical Drones detail how this innovative technology can be used to deliver goods for consumers and save the lives of medical patients. Every title describes the privacy concerns regarding drones—yes, they’re reshaping the future, but is it really for the better? For report writers, these books provide excellent, well-written, and quotable information. Supplemented by the frequent use of photos, the easy-to-read text is full of facts. VERDICT Though they may become quickly outdated, these titles are thorough, worthwhile additions.
