Theory of warfare & military science

Hardcover. This book argues that understanding truces is crucial for our ability to wind down wars. We have paid too much attention to the idea of permanent peace, yet few conflicts end in this way. The book describes how truce makers think, which truces can be morally justified and provides a philosophical history of truce making in the Western tradition. Series: Palgrave Studies in Ethics and Public Policy. Num Pages: 136 pages, black & white illustrations. BIC Classification: HPQ; JWA. Category: (P) Professional & Vocational. Dimension: 225 x 143 x 14. Weight in Grams: 294.

It answers the question: 'If war is a very great evil, would a leader with courage, justice, compassion, and all the other moral virtues ever choose to fight a war?'
