Naval War College Review


Martin L. Cook


Nigel Biggar is Regis Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology and Director of the McDonald Centre for Theology, Ethics, and Public Life at the Univer- sity of Oxford. This volume collects seven essays on various aspects of the just war tradition. It is very much a book of theological ethics, although in strong dialogue with contemporary philosophical just war thinking and the international legal framework of the law of armed conflict. Although the essays are to some degree independent of each other, they are united by Biggar’s clear and consistent theological perspective.
