Can War be Just in the 21st Century ?: Ethicists Engage the Tradition

Edited by Tobias Win Right and Laurie Johnston



This book is a lively overview of the ways in which a younger generation of Catholic ethicists is extending the just war tradition to cover such topics as drones, cluster bombs, humanitarian intervention, and care for the harm suffered by soldiers. The essays in this book bring the tradition up to date, not by stretching it to make it justify new tactics and technologies, but by subjecting the horrors of modern war to strict moral scrutiny, and thereby enhancing our ability to say 'No' to violence when conscience demands it. Thinking about war with integrity requires the kind of moral seriousness exhibited in this book. This work is both careful and pioneering. This book is a must-read not only for Christian ethicists, but for any citizens concerned about the morality of war as it is fought today and will be fought in the future.

Just Water: Theology, Ethics, and the Global Water Crisis

by Christinana Z. Peppard



By probing deeply into a crucial environmental problem, Peppard succeeds in opening up other interlaced and contested environmental debates in global agriculture, climate change, and energy use as well as complex ethical questions about human rights, economics and gender issues. Woven into this account, we find critical theological threads emerging from liberation theology and Roman Catholic social teaching as well as humility about humanity's place in the world, while affirming insights emerging from the natural science. This aporoach serves to make complex environmental issues more accessible to the reader, more manageable, and therefore provides concrete basis for specific action. This book is good for students and researchers alike.
