Killing in War

Jeff McMahan

Uehiro Series in Practical Ethics

  • A highly controversial challenge to the consensus about responsibility in war
  • Argues compellingly that if the leaders are in the wrong, then the soldiers are in the wrong
  • Has disturbing implications e.g. for the moral status of British and American combatants in Iraq
  • Clear, concise, and careful -- a provoking read for anyone concerned about the morality of war
