Just War Against Terror: The Burden of American Power in a Violent Worldby Jean Bethke Elshtain
Inspired by the surge in global terrorism and violence, Jean Bethke Elshtain, one of America's foremost political philosophers, mounts an impassioned defense of "just war" against terror. Advocating an ethic of responsibility, Elshtain forces us to ask tough questions not only about the nature of terrorism, but about ourselves. This edition features a new epilogue by the author, addressing the Iraq war and other events in the Middle East.
