JOURNAL: European Journal of International Law XXIV (2013/1): Symposium on Walzer's Just and Unjust Wars

(image: Oxford Journals)

The European Journal of International Law, one of the leading international law-journals in the world, published a thematic issue on Michael Walzer (Princeton)'s classic Just and Unjust wars. A moral argument with historical illustrations, which appeared for the first time in 1977.

International lawyers comment on and debate Walzer's key positions. Some of the contributions are of interest to legal historians as well (e.g. Robert Howse's "Thucydides and Just War", 17-24; J.H.H. Weiler & A. Deshman's "Far be it from Thee to Slay the Righteous with the Wicked: An Historical and Historiographical Search of the Bellicose Debate Concerning the Distinction between Jus ad Bellum and Jus in Bello, 25-62; Paul W. Kahn's "Imagining Warfare", 199-226; N. A. Shah's "The Use of Force under Islamic Law", 343-365, or G. Blum's "The Fog of Victory", 391-422).
