Summary
"These papers on the Just War derive from a set of seminars and a conference. The seminars and conference took place at Bard College and a senior course at the United States Military Academy at West Point presented in semester two of 2012. The students of both institutions met for four joint sessions at both venues. The papers from Bard College concentrate on history and religions, those from USMA West Point on contemporary law and philosophy. So both approaches to learning--social science and history--are utilized"--Preface, p. vii
