Reviews
"This new book by David Corey and J. Daryl Charles offers us an introduction . . . [to a] tradition of reflection [that] must inform our thinking on foreign policy today. Platitudes, checklists, and positive laws are not enough in an age of a nuclear Middle East, drone strikes, and preemptive interventions." --The Public Discourse"This wonderfully readable book provides a rich and thoughtful account of the theoretical development of the concept of the just war." --James Ceaser, professor of politics at the University of Virginia"In this supple and accessible account, Corey and Charles reintroduce us to a profound body of knowledge that we have neglected to our detriment." --Wilfred M. McClay, Blankenship Chair in the History of Liberty at the -University of Oklahoma"An excellent survey of the major thinkers in the Western just war tradition--Catholic, Protestant, and liberal. Corey and Charles provide citizens with the resources to respond intelligently and responsibly to the monumental challenges of the present." --James R. Stoner Jr., professor of political science at Louisiana State University
