9780739121306: Moral Constraints on War: Principles and Cases, 2nd Edition

Just War Theory is becoming increasingly important to nations when they contemplate and participate in war. This book recognizes the timeliness of the topic and so seeks, in concrete historical terms, to deal with the issue of constraining war on the basis of moral principles.

About the Author:

Nick Fotion is professor of philosophy at Emory University. Bruno Coppieters is professor of political science at Vrije Universiteit Brussel in Belgium.

Review:

For a reader who is looking for an interesting, concise, and well-organized book on the just war criteria, utilizing contemporary examples to demonstrate how they work, this volume is a must-read. (H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online)

The book will be of special interest to anyone working in the field of military ethics, and it will also be valuable to others with an interest in moral issues in the context of war. (Journal of Peace Research)

This excellent book on war and ethics focuses in particular on just war theory, but it also examines in some detail realism, militarism and pacifism. (Journal of Peace Research)

The book is a very good demonstration of just-war theory's current relevance and importance. (CHOICE)

There is extensive literature that deals with threat perceptions in the United States, China, the European Union, and Russia. This book is unique in that it brings [to the debate] the application of transcultural ethical principles to the question of war. (Dmitri Trenin, Carnegie Moscow Center)

Coppieters and Fotion have edited an interesting and useful volume on the contemporary relevance and application of just war theory. . . . the volume is a very welcome addition. . . . it offers good insights into the debate on the ethics of war and ultimately enriches the debate. (Millennium: Journal of International Studies)

This well-integrated book is truly an impressive cross-cultural scholarly collaboration and international effort. It is a welcome addition to a large and growing literature and will prove to be an excellent value not only to interested scholars, but also in related undergraduate and graduate university courses in religion, philosophy, political science and international relations. (Rex Martin, University of Kansas)

I am impressed by the scholarship, breadth, and clarity of the work. The authors clearly discuss the various principles and rules of Just War Theory . . . and cover many diverse perspectives. The work draws on a number of helpful examples, including many from wars of the past decade, to create an international viewpoint. (Rick Werner, Hamilton College)

Book Description Lexington Books, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. This second edition of Moral Constraints on War offers a principle-by-principle presentation of the trans-cultural roots of the ethics of war in an age defined by the increasingly international nature of military intervention. Parts one and two trace the evolution of Just War Theory, analyzing the principles of jus ad bellum and jus in bello: the principles that determine under what conditions a war may be started and then conducted. Each chapter provides a historical background of the principle under discussion, an explanation of the principle, and numerous historical examples of its application. In Part three, case studies apply the theories discussed to NATO s humanitarian mission in Kosovo, terrorism and the Iraq War. Bringing together an international coterie of philosophers and political scientists, this accessible and practical guide offers students of military ethics and international relations rich, up-to-the-minute insight into the pluralistic character of Just War Theory.
