Lively political and public debates on war and morality have been a feature of the post-Cold War world. The Price of Peace argues that a re-examination of the just war tradition is therefore required. The authors suggest that despite fluctuations and transformations in international politics, the just war tradition continues to be relevant. However they argue that it needs to be reworked to respond to the new challenges to international security represented by the end of the Cold War and the impact of terrorism. With an interdisciplinary and transatlantic approach, this volume provides a dialogue between theological, political, military and public actors. By articulating what a reconstituted just war tradition might mean in practice, it also aims to assist policy-makers and citizens in dealing with the ethical dilemmas of war. An accessible examination of what the notion of a 'just war' means in the modern world, in the context of mass terrorism, rogue states and the Iraq War A distinguished group of academics (politics, philosophy and theology), and practitioners (soldiers, church people, civil servants, lawyers) provide a major statement on the moral status of war Will interest an academic audience but also those from religious communities, the military and policy-makers interested in foreign policy and defence issues Contents Foreword Richard Dannatt; 1.
