From the Back Cover:

"We tend to assume that pacifism is radical and the Just War Tradition is mainstream, but the authors of this volume make clear that the Just War Tradition would have radical consequences if it were taken seriously. These essays bring the tradition up to date, not by stretching it to make it justify new tactics and technologies, but by subjecting the horrors of modern war to strict moral scrutiny, and thereby enhancing our ability to say 'No' to violence when conscience demands it. Thinking about war with integrity requires the kind of moral seriousness exhibited in this volume." --William T. Cavanaugh, DePaul University

"Tobias Winright and Laurie Johnston have produced an outstanding collection of essays on the relevance of the just war tradition to contemporary warfare. This book is a must-read--not only for Christian ethicists, but for any citizens concerned about the morality of war as it is fought today and will be fought in the future." --Stephen J. Pope, Boston College

"Can War Be Just in the 21st Century? is a lively overview of the ways in which a younger generation of Catholic ethicists is extending the just war tradition to cover such topics as drones, cluster bombs, humanitarian intervention, and care for the harm suffered by soldiers. Their work is both careful and pioneering." --John Langan, S.J., Georgetown University

"Provides a timely and rigorous articulation of the just war tradition.... I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to seriously think about Christianity, war, peace, and justice in the 21st century." --Mark Allman, Merrimack College
