Description

In Michael Walzer on War and Justice Brian Orend offers the first clear and comprehensive look at Walzer's entire body of work. He deals with controversial subjects - from bullets, blood, and bombs to the distribution of money, political power, and health care - and surveys both the national and the international fields of justice. This is an important book that provides a thought-provoking and critical look at some of the most pressing and controversial topics of our time.

Editorial Review

"Orend carefully expounds Walzer's philosophy ... showing how the arguments of Just and Unjust Wars are related to those of Spheres of Justice, Thick and Thin, and other works. The book exposes tensions between Walzer's 'conventionalism' and his attachment to a minimal but more universal and more consistently nonconsequentialist understanding of morality. In exploring these tensions, Orend deepens our understanding of Walzer and makes a contribution of his own to the discussion of international justice." Terry Nardin, author of Law, Morality and The Relations of States, and professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
