Asymmetric Killing

Risk Avoidance, Just War, and the Warrior Ethos

Neil C. Renic

  • Details the challenge of radical battlefield asymmetry for the ethics of killing in war
  • Evaluates how UAV violence mirrors and diverges from the asymmetry challenges of the past
  • Explores the implications of radical asymmetry for the regulation of lethal force
