    “For more than two hundred years African Americans have fought for their own personal freedom as well as that of their fellow Americans.

  • The Nature of Warby Jim Stempel

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2012; US$ 45.00

    For over 12,000 years human beings have warred, slaughtering each other with persistence and brutality. From spear point to thermonuclear ordnance, human ingenuity has had a serious downside. In the 20th century alone, wars claimed more than 90 million lives. Yet war's origins, meaning, and evolution over the millennium remain to this day a mystery.... more...

    Cambridge University Press 2012; US$ 26.00

  • The Gamble of Warby Ariel Colonomos

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 95.00

    This book analyzes the justification of preventive war in contemporary asymmetrical international relations. It focuses on the most crucial aspect of prevention: uncertainty. It builds a new framework where the role of luck?whether military, political, moral, or normative?is a corrective to the traditional approaches of the just war tradition. more...

    Constable & Robinson 2013; US$ 13.11

    0900 hours, 11th September, 2012. Darkness cloaks the American Embassy in Libya. The flag is flying at half-mast, to commemorate the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks on America.

  • International Securityby Christopher S. Browning

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 9.99

    The subject of international security is never out of the headlines. The subjects of war and peace, military strategy, the proliferation of nuclear weapons and revisionist states remain central to the discussion, but burgeoning concerns such as climate change, migration, poverty, health, and international terrorism have complicated the field. So what... more...

  • Head Strongby Michael D. Matthews

    Oxford University Press, USA 2013; US$ 21.99

    Psychology is the science that will determine who wins and who loses the wars of the 21st century, just as physics ultimately led the United States to victory in World War II. Changes in the world's political landscape coupled with radical advances in the technology of war will greatly alter how militaries are formed, trained, and led. Leadership... more...

  • The Future of Just Warby Caron E. Gentry; Amy E. Eckert

    University of Georgia Press 2014; US$ 24.95

    Just War scholarship has adapted to contemporary crises and situations. But its adaptation has spurned debate and conversation—a method and means of pushing its thinking forward. Now the Just War tradition risks becoming marginalized. This concern may seem out of place as Just War literature is proliferating, yet this literature remains welded... more...

  • War's Endsby James G. Murphy

    Georgetown University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    Before military action, and even before mobilization, the decision on whether to go to war is debated by politicians, pundits, and the public. As they address the right or wrong of such action, it is also a time when, in the language of the just war tradition, the wise would deeply investigate their true claim to jus ad bellum ("the right of war").... more...
