Opis produktu

'P>This book examines the importance of military ethics in the formulation and conduct of contemporary military strategy.'/P>'P>Clausewitzs original analysis of war relegated ethics to the sidelines in favor of political realism interpreting the proper use of military power solely to further the political goals of the state whatever those may be. This book demonstrates how such singleminded focus no longer suffices to secure the interest of states for whom the nature of warfare has evolved to favor strategies that hold combatants themselves to the highest moral and professional standards in their conduct of hostilities. Waging war has thus been transformed in a manner that moves beyond Clausewitzs original conception rendering political success wholly dependent upon the cultivation and exercise of discerning moral judgment by strategists and combatants in the field. This book utilizes a number of perspectives and case studies to demonstrate how ethics now plays a central role in strategy in modern armed conflict.'/P>'P>This book will be of much interest to students of just war ethics military strategy and international relations.'P>Introduction'/P>'P>1. On War ('Zum Krieg'/)'/P>'P>2. Inconvenient Truths'/P>'P>3. This is Not your Fathers War'/P>'P>4. What is just war discourse?'/P>'P>5. The Principle of Last Resort'/P>'P>6.

Forgetful Warriors'/P>'P>Conclusion'P>'STRONG>George Lucas has done a timely and superb analysis of ongoing dramatic changes in warfare and the associated effects this is having on the role of ethics for strategic leaders. He describes how emerging domains of war in space and cyber not only raise new ethical challenges but also expand their complexity dramatically at the same time bringing ethical and moral choice to the center of decision making in war. This should be read carefully by senior political and military leaders and will be invaluable to professional military development around the globe.'/STRONG>'I> Col.

That Lucas is able to bring these three elements together with relevant and concrete case studies and examples makes this a must read for scholars and practitioners alike.'/B> 'I>Pauline Shanks Kaurin VADM Stockdale Professor of Ethics U.S. Naval War College'/I> '/P>'P>'/P>'B>'P>George L
