9780761840794: Ethics of Conviction and Civic Responsibility: Conscientious War Resisters in America During the World Wars

Despite a long history and tradition in the United States, conscientious objectors to war have always been in the minority. Only a handful of objectors dissented against World War I and II, and their voices were never influential in respect to the state's war policy or public opinion.

This book examines the challenges posed by conscientious objectors during World Wars by focusing on two main themes: ethic of conviction and ethic of civic responsibility. In this groundbreaking study, author Yuichi Moroi asks: How did conscientious objectors express their conviction in the case of the state's imperative for war? On what basis could conscientious objectors define their civic responsibility and act upon it?

Ethics of Conviction and Civic Responsibility asserts that despite the tension between the individual and society as experienced by conscientious objectors, there is a connection between them that holds a unique combination of conviction and civic responsibility.

About the Author:

Yuichi Moroi is a former lecturer at Boston University. He studied at Jiyu Gakuen (Tokyo) and Earlham College before earning his Ph.D. in sociology at Boston University.

Review:

Moroi has done a faithful job of analyzing the position of absolutists. His juxtaposition of individual conviction and civic responsibility is very good and accurate . . . (George M. Houser, one of eight Union Theological Seminary students who refused to register for the draft of 1940, later co-founder of Congress of)
