From the Publisher"One could not wish for a more tightly developed set of empirical cases ... Bellamy produces a very thoughtful narrative, emphasizing the disparate elements that comprise the modern just war tradition."
"A model of careful and balanced discussion ... Bellamy strikes just the right balance between rigorous examination of general concepts and consideration of the concrete aspects of particular cases."
Henry Shue, Survival
“A convincing analysis of the emergence of international law and the dominance of realism after the Second World War [and] an excellent application of this theoretical and historical narrative to contemporary issues.”
Political Studies Review
"This is an engaging book that captures the breadth and depth of arguments over why and how we should kill one another."
"A book to admire and to argue with – in other words, the best sort of book."
Jean Bethke Elshtain, University of Chicago
