Editorial Reviews


On its own merits, this is...worth reading...[I]t also demonstrates the way...Catholic just war tradition is limber....Allman and Winright enliven our...tradition and make it relevant for...our day.
--Michael Sean Winters, National Catholic Reporter

After the Smoke Clears is a significant contribution to Christian thought about war and peace.... This book is well organized and clearly written...and it is essential for anyone who wishes to be conversant with the contemporary just war tradition.
--J. Milburn Thompson, Horizons

After the Smoke Clears covers the post bellum ground in a way that is extraordinarily helpful for those who want a concise and explicitly theological look at how moral responsibility does not end when the guns go silent.
--Brian J. Auten, Political Theology

Allman and Winright have produced a landmark work among contemporary writings on the Christian just war tradition.... The cogency and quality of [their] work will likely ensure that any efforts to develop and refine the post bellum criteria...will rely heavily on what they have written.
--Matthew Shadle, Theological Studies

From the Back Cover

"Allman and Winright provide readers with a clear, concise, balanced, and informed assessment of an important topic in debates about modern warfare: the issue of moral duties in a post-conflict situation." - Kenneth Himes, O.F.M., Boston College

"Timely and readable.... Shows us not only that nations have responsibilities after war 'ends,' but also that reconstructing societies requires specific processes of restoration." - Lisa Sowle Cahill, Boston College
