Individual topics include conflict resolution within Judaism, uses of the notion of jihad, principles of humanitarian intervention following 9/11, religion and international laws concerning war and peace, and the role of religion in the context of the armed intervention in the former Yugoslavia. The contributors are senior scholars and public officials in religion, conflict resolution, and world affairs in the US. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
