Synopsis: Augustinian Just War Theory and the Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq: Confessions, Contentions, and the Lust for Power details two major symposia on the topic of Christian (Augustinian) just war theory, its strengths and weaknesses, and its controversial application to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The renowned participants represent some of the most distinguished philosophers, theologians, and foreign policy makers in the world, including John D. Caputo, Cardinal Avery Dulles, S.J., Joseph Margolis, Cardinal Seán O?Malley (Preface), Roland J. Teske, S.J. (Foreword), and Frederick Van Fleteren. By intersecting philosophy, theology, and foreign policy, this book greatly contributes to the global discussion of the current wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and it provides the foundation for analyzing the present war in Libya as well as future conflicts.

About the Author: Craig J. N. de Paulo is a professor of philosophy and theology at Gwynedd Mercy College and a distinguished scholar of Augustine of Hippo and his influence on Western thought.

Patrick A. Messina is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Gwynedd Mercy College.

Daniel P. Tompkins is Associate Professor Emeritus of Greek and Roman Classics at Temple University.
