Abstract

Somewhat ironically—and sadly—a decade or more of ill-advised wars has been very good for the study of military ethics and the just war tradition. More seems to have been written on the subject in the last 10 years than in the entire preceding 30 years since the publication of Michael Walzer’s seminal Just and Unjust Wars. That proliferation of the literature has brought with it an expansion beyond the traditional areas of concern of jus ad bellum and jus in bello. Perhaps most familiarly, a number of authors 2 have championed the cause of jus post bellum, arguing that more attention needs to be paid to the phase after the end of the war proper, and for a mutual interdependence between all three areas of concern.
