Overview

War and Border Crossings brings together renowned scholars to address some of the most pressing problems in public policy, international affairs, and the intercultural issues of our day. Contributors from widely varying disciplines discuss cross-cultural ethical issues and international topics ranging from American international policy and the invasion and occupation of Iraq to domestic topics such as immigration, the war on drugs, cross-cultural bioethics, and ethical issues involving American Indian tribes.

The culture clashes discussed in these essays raise serious question about what principles ought to inform the negotiating of conflicts in order to achieve, or at least approach, outcomes that are fundamentally just fair, responsible, and ethical.
