Humanitarian Wars?

Lies and Brainwashing

Rony Brauman and With Régis Meyran

A Hurst Publication

  • Basing his argument on the criteria for a "just war," Brauman criticizes the Western obsession with imposing democratic values by force. In this sober and convincing book, he thoroughly dismantles the notion of the justness of "humanitarian wars."
  • MSF does important work, but charities are under unique scrutiny right now so this helps demonstrate their usefulness
  • Considers the false justifications for war without being militantly non-interventionist
