About-

Kenneth Vaux elucidates the great just war traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, evaluating the key events of the Gulf War in light of the religious rhetoric used by both sides. Religious and ethical appeals played a major role in winning support not just of the U.S. and Iraqi peoples but of public opinion worldwide. Vaux demonstrates the wide gap between the religious rhetoric and the political-military action it was called on to support.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Compelling and stimulating moral reflections on war from the perspective of various traditions. 'Ethics and the Gulf War' will generate much valuable discussion about both the war and the moral rhetoric used."
