About This Item

New York: Basic Books, Inc., Publishers [1977], 1977. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. xx, 361 pp. Price of $15.00 on the front flap of the dust jacket. Maroon cloth with gold lettering on the spine. From the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy: "Michael Walzer's Just and Unjust Wars, first published in 1977, has been extraordinarily influential among philosophers, political scientists, international lawyers, and military practitioners. Among its key contributions were its defence of central traditionalist positions on national defence, humanitarian intervention, discrimination, and combatant equality." ("War", SEP). Walzer's book is a foundational text in the traditionalist school of thought in philosophy of war and war ethics. His careful treatment of the subject ultimately concludes that war can be just only in limited circumstances (The Oxford Companion to Philosophy, Honderich 905-906). A Near Fine book with two tiny dings to the bottom edges of the boards in a Near Fine dust jacket with an occasional spot of wear and mild fading to the spine panel.
