It moves far beyond the review of the standard just war categories to deal comprehensively with the new challenges of the conflict with terrorism. It thoughtfully reviews every major military conflict of the past few decades, mining them for implications of the evolving tradition of just war thinking. It concludes with a critical engagement with the major alternatives to just war thinking: pacifism and realism. It is, in short, the most comprehensive and thoughtful assessment of all aspects of just war since Michael Walzers classic Just and Unjust Wars. - Martin L. Cook, United States Air Force Academy
