Justifying the Obligation to Die : War, Ethics, and Political Obligation with Illustrations from Zionism Hardback

Description

Justifying the Obligation to Die provides a critical survey covering classical, medieval, and modern political thinking on how the state or sovereign may justifiably oblige members of the community to risk their lives on its behalf by being sent into war, and it uses Zionism to illustrate how this obligation has been argued in practice.

The author then turns to the political thought of Hannah Arendt in order to argue how the obligation could become justifiable.
