  • 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...

  • The Nature of Future Conflictby Richard Connaughton

    Pen and Sword 1995; US$ 8.99

    Whilst the collapse of the Soviet Union and, with it, the associated Warsaw Pact, has greatly reduced the threat of a major conflict with Europe, the story of the involvement of the United Nations in so-called 'peace' operations over the past six years makes it abundantly clear that the world-wide incidence of low intensity, intra-state conflict... more...

  • Tears On My Pillowby Narelle Biedermann

    Random House Australia 2011; US$ 14.85

    "Don't forget your cotton underwear, girls!"Most books that look at the involvement of Australians in the Vietnam War rarely allude to the role of nurses. But war and nursing are unequivocally linked. A total of 43 Australian Army nursing sisters were sent to Vietnam between April 1967 and November 1971, undertaking tours of up to 12 months. The nurses... more...

  • 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...
