A Moral Argument With Historical Illustrations
Trade Size (reprint)
Add to Wish List
A classic treatment of the morality of war written by one
of our country's 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." 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.
