Description

If, when, why and how to fight a war? In the case of the Gulf War, that debate encompassed three faiths - Christianity, Islam and Judaism - and the debate has acquired new dimensions in the aftermath of the September 11 2001 attacks and the war on terrorism. In this volume Jews, Muslims and Christians with very diverse views address such issues as the just war doctrine, explaining their differences and finding often surprising common ground. This edition reprints the full text of the first one, and has a new preface that describes the differences and similarities between the Gulf War and the war against al Qaeda/Taliban. Also included are the introduction explaining the just war doctrine, a glossary of terms and an expanded and updated "suggestions for further reading" section.

Contents

The agenda for discussion; a Christian perspective; the Jewish tradition; the Islamic tradition; how to improve just war criteria; a just peace perspective; a pacifist perspective; the larger agenda.
