Nuclear Deterrence and Moral Restraint by Henry Shue

Book Description

This important collection of essays brings together the work of prominent philosophers, political scientists, policy analysts, and defence consultants. It takes as its point of departure two central tendencies in current nuclear strategy: mutual assured destruction (MAD) and nuclear utilization target selections (NUTS). The essays examine and assess the arguments for these and other positions on the spectrum of policy options, and elaborate the implications of this analysis for strategic policy and for the further pursuit of research into SDI, and other matters.

Books By Author Henry Shue

Climate Justice by Henry Shue Climate Justice, Paperback (June 2016)

Climate change is the most difficult threat facing humanity this century and negotiations to reach international agreement have so far foundered on deep issues of justice. Providing provocative and imaginative answers to key questions of justice, informed by political insight and scientific understanding, this book offers a new way forward.

Fighting Hurt by Henry Shue Fighting Hurt, Hardback (March 2016)

This volume brings together key work by the leading political philosopher Henry Shue on the issue of torture, and the moral challenges surrounding the initiation and conduct of war.

American Way of Bombing by Henry Shue American Way of Bombing, Paperback (July 2014)

This volume brings together prominent military historians, practitioners, civilian and military legal experts, political scientists, philosophers, and anthropologists to explore the evolution of ethical and legal norms governing air warfare.

Just and Unjust Warriors by Henry Shue Just and Unjust Warriors, Paperback (August 2010)

Can a soldier be held responsible for fighting in a war that is illegal or unjust? The chapters in the book both challenge and defend many deeply held assumptions: about the liability of soldiers for crimes of aggression, about the nature and justifiability of terrorism, about the relationship between law and morality.
