For the first time since his classic "Just and Unjust Wars was published almost thirty years ago, this volume brings together provocative arguments by preeminent political theorist Michael Walzer on contemporary military conflicts--including the Iraq war--and the ethical issues they raise. "Walzer has moved the concerns over just war from the periphery of political theory to the very center of our democratic dilemma."--Garry Wills, "New York Review of Books "If there is such a thing as the American conscience, one of its most important custodians is Michael Walzer. . . . A must read."--Peter S. Temes, "San Francisco Chronicle "[This] practical guide for the world we live in . . . [is] one of the most important books of the year."--Aaron Howard, "Houston Jewish Herald-Voice "Accessible and elegantly written . . . [and] essential reading for [both] scholars and practitioners.""--Choice
