Product Description:

[ The Ethics of War and Peace: An Introduction to Legal and Moral Issues (Revised) By ( Author ) Oct-2003 Paperback

Review:


"This is a very good and useful book for both undergraduate and graduate courses dealing with just war and the ethics of war. It is attractive because it is brief ...but contains a high concentration of substance and encourages class discussions and further explorations in the field." — Fariborz L. Mokhtari, Norwich University




"Soldier-scholar Paul Christopher contributes a significant book, applying philosophical insight to military practice, which resonates meaningfully against the din of the usual pabulum on the subject. An ideal textbook, it's important to the citizen but indispensable to the soldier." — LTC (Ret.) Tim Challans, Associate Professor, Combat Studies Institute, USACGSC




"This text is energetically evaluative ...urging students to tackle real and serious war/peace implications of law and morality." — Louis R. Beres, Purdue University




"I especially appreciate Christopher's historical discussion of the origins [of the Just War tradition in the classical era and the linkage he makes between just war and the development of international law." — Wayne S. Osborn, Iowa State University
