Summary
This volume tackles one of the most important and controversial questions of our time: When is war justified? When a nation is attacked, few would deny that it has the right to respond with force, but what about pre-emptive and preventive wars, or crossing another state's border to stop genocide? Was Israel justified in initiating the Six Day War, and was NATO's intervention in Kosovo legal? What about the U.S. invasion of Iraq? The authors offer a theory on the legality of war with guidelines for evaluating these interventions.--
