The first critique of the Australian military experience from a Christian ethical perspective. It surveys attitudes towards war and warfare from ancient to modern times, considers the moral status of the nation-state and international sovereignty, asks whether the just war tradition was relevant to campaigns against Iraq, assesses recent emphasis on collective security and suggests some difficulties associated with recognising conscientious objection.
