Just war against terror : the burden of American power in a violent world
Elshtain (social and political ethics, U. of Chicago) makes a case for the use of military force to combat terrorism. Aimed at political scientists and the interested general reader, the text begins with an analysis of the meanings embedded in the different ways in which the terrorist attacks of September 11 have been described. Other topics include the requirements for a "just war," the responses of academics and clerics to terrorism, and the responsibility of the United States to defend its ideals
