Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
A classic treatment of the morality of war written by one of our countrys leading philosophers, with a new introduction considering the wars in Bosnia and Kosovo. 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.” Walzers classic work draws on historical illustrations that range all the way from the Athenian attack on Melos to this mornings headlines, and uses the testimony of participants—decision makers and victims alike—to examine the moral issues of warfare.
