Recovering Christian Realism : Just War Theory as a Political Ethic, Hardback Book

Recovering Christian Realism : Just War Theory as a Political Ethic Hardback

Description

In Recovering Christian Realism, H. David Baer interprets just war theory as political ethic concerned with the moral administration of power.

He argues that contemporary just war theorists, by debating the finer points of individual criteria, have lost sight of the theory of politics that gives rise to just war thinking in the first place.

Baer attempts to relocate just war theory within the tradition of Christian realism in order to develop an ethic capable of addressing the uses of power.

He argues the just war criteria unfold from a description of the political act, one which harnesses power to peace and points the way toward an ethic of armed force and international relations.
