Description

From the end of World War II until the mid-1990s, military intervention was largely rejected on moral, political and legal grounds. In recent years, in the wake of civil and ethnic wars, ethical thinking about armed intervention has begun to change. The so-called War on Terror has complicated the issue further, with the US arguing for military action against those it regards as a threat to world peace and security. In "Righteous Violence", nine leading thinkers explore the ethical and practical consequences of these changes. Edited by Tony Coady and Michael O'Keefe, with contributions from national and international scholars and defence strategists, "Righteous Violence" is a cool-headed and challenging assessment of the defining issue of our day.show more
