Description

The first edition of The Morality of War was one of the most widely-read and successful books ever written on the topic. In this second edition, Brian Orend builds on the substantial strengths of the first, adding important new material on: cyber-warfare; drone attacks; the wrap-up of Iraq and Afghanistan; conflicts in Libya and Syria; and protracted struggles (like the Arab-Israeli conflict). Updated and streamlined throughout, the book offers new research tools and case studies, while keeping the winning blend of theory and history featured in the first edition. This book remains an engaging and comprehensive examination of the ethics, and practice, of war and peace in today’s world.

Editorial Review

"The Morality of War takes the reader from the Greco-Roman period to contemporary ethical challenges associated with cyberwar and terrorism. This book is approachable and enjoyable for anyone—students, scholars, and soldiers—interested in the nexus of morality and conflict."
