"A thoughtful analysis of the legal, cultural and philosophical issues we face generally in times of war and, particularly, in the post-September 11 world. . . . Fletcher is a very serious academic who has the ability to support his arguments with a remarkable command of disparate sources."--David C. Wrobel, New York Law Journal
From the Inside Flap
"This is a first-rate book. Fletcher is doing what he does best--reformulating basic legal problems by putting them in a distinctive philosophical perspective. The book suggests that we are getting beyond the first stage of encounter with September 11 and to a second phase in which we struggle to integrate the tragedy into a deeper understanding of law and morality."--Bruce Ackerman, Yale Law School
"Lawyers and foreign policy commentators are unlikely to see themselves as romantics. Contemporary issues of war and peace, terrorism and justice, justification and guilt surely require 'reasoned analysis' rather than the dissection of emotion. But our analysis too often falls short when contending with the potent mix of horror, grief, and patriotism that has fueled the U.S. response to September 11. George Fletcher has done us all a service, drawing out the contradictions between the dignity of individuals and the honor of nations in ways that cannot even be fully grasped without appreciating the intertwining of Enlightenment rationalism and nineteenth-century romanticism. Romantics at War should be read by all self-professed rationalists, as both intellectual inquiry and self-examination."--Anne-Marie Slaughter, Princeton University
"George Fletcher has written a deep and engaging meditation on a simple fact: that we live in political collectives and rarely act with full autonomy. With a lawyer's gift for expounding his cases, he gives us a wonderfully unlawyerly account, a philosophical investigation, of individual agency, responsibility, and guilt."--Michael Walzer, Institute for Advanced Study
