Just War Tradition and the Restraint of War: A Moral and Historical Inquiry

Wednesday 6 April 2022

Johnson, James Turner. 2014. Princeton: Princeton University Press.

This book is a sequel to Johnson’s Ideology, Reason, and the Limitation of War and aims to investigate how the West developed and perpetuated the notion of ‘just war’ while simultaneously analysing concepts of war-restraint, a potential manifestation of peace. The text examines pre-Christian concepts and how their evolution through the centuries up until the present-day, analyzing how different historical perspectives and contexts have contributed to ideas of war and war restraint.
