Law and War is a collection of five essays on the role of law in war offered as part of the Amherst Series in Law, Jurispru- dence, and Social Thought. What ties the essays together is their shared interest in “interrogating the assumption . . . that the insertion of law into war is necessar- ily a salutary achievement.” But this con- nection is often loose, and, while several of the essays have a great deal of indi- vidual merit, it is perhaps a weakness of the book that it lacks the degree of overall coherence that one might expect.
