Book Description

February 10, 2005 0199275416 978-0199275410
When is it right to go to war? The most persuasive answer to this question has always been 'in self-defense'. In a penetrating new analysis, bringing together moral philosophy, political science, and law, David Rodin shows what's wrong with this answer. He proposes a comprehensive new theory of the right of self-defense which resolves many of the perplexing questions that have dogged both jurists and philosophers.

Review


"[War and Self-Defense] is clearly and shrewdly argued throughout, insightful, provocative, and elegantly written."--Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews


"If you want an original, hugely intelligent ... understanding of the just war principle, with fascinating spins on war guilt and when it is right to kill an enemy ... turn to David Rodin's War and Self-Defense."--Dominick Donald, The Guardian
