Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: James Turner Johnson, author of distinguished works on the just war tradition, here goes beyond the examination of moral restraints on the occasion and conduct of war to a critical study of the moral thinking that has aimed at its prevention. The scrutiny of the "peace issue" in Western society covers nearly two thousand years of history and three traditions of the search for peace: the just war, the sectarian pacifism, and the utopial pacifism. This book reveals the historical depth of all three.
