about

An exploration of Immanuel Kant's account of war and the controversies that have arisen from its interpretation. This book brings the ideas of Kant's critical philosophy to bear on one of the leading political and legal questions of our age: under what circumstances, if any, is recourse to war legally and morally justifiable?
HOWARD WILLIAMS Professor of Political Theory, Department of International Politics, Aberystwyth University, UK.
