Editorial Reviews

Review


"Waldron's luminous intellect beams piercing light into the dark corners of current American political culture and then illuminates unexpected avenues back toward civility and decency. His essay on torture is a special gift, characteristically uniting moral passion with analytic imagination."
-Henry Shue, University of Oxford

These essays explore many facets of the crimes against humanity approved and carried out by the Bush regime. Waldron's indictment is one of the most effective.

Format: Paperback
Out of the din of fear and chaos comes a calm and civilized voice. Jeremy Waldron frames this conflict with a love of humanity and a call for stalwart allegiance to the Rule of Law. Every able adult, regardless of citizenship, should read this book. Torture, Terror, and Trade-Offs: Philosophy for the White House is really philosophy for everyone in the twenty-first century.
