Description - The Just War Revisited by Oliver O'Donovan
With Christian views differing widely on the morality of war, this book seriously re-examines ethical questions of contemporary urgency. The text covers the use of biological and nuclear weapons, military intervention, economic sanctions, and the role of the U.N. Opening with a challenging dedication to the new Archbishop of Canterbury, it proceeds to analyze vital topics which the Archbishop and others will find relevant to the discussion of the ethics of warfare.
