What obligations do nations have to protect citizens of other nations? As responsibility to our fellow human beings and to the stability of civilization over many years has ripened fully into a concept of a "just war," it follows naturally that the time has come to fill in the outlines of the realities and boundaries of what constitutes "just" humanitarian intervention.
Anthony F. Lang Jr. is a lecturer in the School of International Relations at the University of St. Andrews.
Joel Rosenthal, Series Editor
"Just Intervention is a superb collection of thoughtful essays on the ethical issues raised by the use of force for humanitarian ends. Some of the pieces offer conceptual approaches that help untangle the many conflicting values at stake, while others draw specific lessons from recent cases of intervention. The book should be of interest to policymakers as well as academics, since much of the debate inside and outside government over the wisdom of the use of force often turns on the assumed or asserted ethical dimension that is so usefully explained by this collection."—Robert L. Gallucci, dean, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University
