Editorial Reviews


This book displays the impressive conceptual sophistication, argumentative rigor and use of imaginary examples characteristic of Kamms philosophical work. It is a valuable addition to the theoretical literature. Seumas Miller, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews closely reasoned and difficult, but powerful, indeed dazzling, display of philosophical imagination. It hardly needs saying that this is an important contribution to applied ethics. It is impossible in a review adequately to summarize and begin to assess the rich detail of these essays. Joseph Boyle, Ethics a meticulous, imaginative and often provocative contribution to the ethics of violence ... Kamms analyses of the intricate ethics of the principles of right intention and proportionality in the just war, and of the definitional and moral dimensions of interrogational torture, are no less imaginative and challenging than her reflections on terrorism. Altogether, Ethics for Enemies is a highly important contribution to the literature by a seminal philosopher. Christopher Finlay, International Affairs
