Summary
"New military technologies, the rise of private military companies, and the increasing involvement of the military in counterterrorism and humanitarian operations all pose challenges to traditional ideas about the ethics of war, the relevance of current international law governing armed conflict, and Just War theory. This book brings together experts on military ethics to discuss the changing nature of the military's role in the contemporary world."--Provided by publisher
