Open All Close All

  • "[This] volume brings together [the author's] provocative arguments about contemporary military conflicts and the ethical issues they raise." "The essays in the book are divided into three sections. The first deals with issues such as nuclear deterrence, humanitarian intervention, and terrorism. The second consists of Walzer's responses to particular wars, including the first Gulf War and the wars in Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq. And in the third Walzer imagines a future in which war might play a less significant part in our lives. In his introduction to the book, [the author] explains that his thinking has changed over time." Written during a period of intense debates over the proper use of armed force, this book gets to the heart of difficult problems and argues persuasively for a moral perspective on war.-Dust jacket."
