Inspired by the surge in global terrorism and violence, one of America's foremost political philosophers mounts an impassioned defense of "just war" against terror

The Washington Post

Had Jean Bethke Elshtain's compelling and nuanced exposition on the relevance of the just-war doctrine been read and understood by participants in the raging debate that preceded Bush's decision to attack Saddam Hussein's Iraq, that debate might have been far more responsible. As its title suggests, Just War Against Terror addresses the challenge precipitated by Sept. 11, but its moral reasoning and political analyses are equally relevant to the dangers that the murderous regimes in Baghdad and North Korea represent. — Ernest W. Lefever
