display_descriptionWar, Peter Temes writes, is always wrong but sometimes necessary. With that principle at its center, this book offers a critical history of Just War thinking, beginning with ancient epics and extending through American responses to the terrorist attacks of September 11. Temes (Antioch New England Graduate School) presents material he used for courses on the moral principles of war that he taught at Harvard and the University of Chicago. He combines a tour of history about ideas of just war, with a personal meditation trying to connect those ideas with today's world.
