Oxford University Press, 2011. 272p. Paperback. Series: Uehiro Series in Practical Ethics. McMahan's outstanding and readable book Killing in War. . should help to quiet non-philosophers who dismiss Anglo-American philosophy for being esoteric and aloof, and philosophers who complain that little is happening in moral and political philosophy. He gives comprehensive arguments; he charitably formulates and conscientiously responds to objections. His conclusions might make many readers uncomfortable, but he arrives at them on the basis of moral considerations that otherwise are not particularly controversial. [The book's] rigor, depth, and humanity are estimable. Lionel K. McPherson, Mind 10/07/2010 (Publisher's information). Condition: New. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 41053

Buchbeschreibung Oxford Univ Pr, 2007. Gebundene Ausgabe. Buchzustand: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Gut - On 26 August 1914 the world-famous university library in the Belgian town of Louvain was looted and destroyed by German troops. The international community reacted in horror - 'Holocaust at Louvain' proclaimed the Daily Mail - and the behaviour of the Germans at Louvain came to be seen as the beginning of a different style of war, without the rules that had governed military conflict up to that point - a more total war, in which enemy civilians and their entire culture were now 'legitimate' targets. Yet the destruction at Louvain was simply one symbolic moment in a wider wave of cultural destruction and mass killing that swept Europe in the era of the First World War. Using a wide range of examples and eye-witness accounts from across Europe at this time, award-winning historian Alan Kramer paints a picture of an entire continent plunging into a chilling new world of mass mobilization, total warfare, and the celebration of nationalist or ethnic violence - often directed expressly at the enemy's civilian population. 434 pp. Englisch.
