Just and Unjust Wars: A Moral Argument with Historical Illustrations (Basic Books Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic work examines the issues surrounding military theory, war crimes, and the spoils of war from the Athenian attack on Melos to the My Lai massacre. A revised and updated classic treatment of the morality of war written by one of our country's leading philosophers. Just and Unjust Wars examines a variety of conflicts in order to understand exactly why, according to Walzer, "the argument about war and justice is still a political and moral necessity." Walzer's classic work draws on historical illustrations that range all the way from the Athenian attack on Melos to this morning's headlines, and uses the testimony of participants-decision makers and victims alike-to examine the moral issues of warfare.

Synopsis:

This treatment of the morality of war, includes a new introduction considering the wars in Bosnia and Kosovo. Walzer draws on historical illustrations that range from the Athenian attack on Melos to today's news headlines.
