Books By Author Claudia Card
Beyond Just War, Hardback (August 2012)
Unlike most books on the ethics of war, this book rejects the 'just war' tradition, proposing a virtue ethics of war to take its place. Like torture, war cannot be justified. It answers the question: 'If war is a very great evil, would a leader with courage, justice, compassion, and all the other moral virtues ever choose to fight a war?'
Confronting Evils, Hardback (July 2010)
This philosophical study of collectively perpetrated and suffered atrocities examines the tension between responding to evils and preserving humanitarian values.
Atrocity Paradigm, Paperback (February 2005)
