Ending Wars Well
Though scholars of political science and moral philosophy have long analyzed the justifications for and against waging war as well as the ethics of warfare itself, the problem ofendingwars has received less attention. In the first book to apply just war theory to this phase of conflict, Eric Patterson presents a three-part view of justice in end-of-war settings involving order, justice, and reconciliation. Patterson's case studies range from successful applications ofjus post bellum,such as the U.S. Civil War or Kosovo, to challenges such as present-day Iraq.
