Opposing Perspectives On The Drone Debate

by B. Strawser, Opposing Perspectives On The Drone Debate Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Opposing Perspectives On The Drone Debate books, Does the lethal use of drones pose any new or difficult moral problems? Or is the controversy over these weapons merely a distraction from deeper questions regarding the justice of war and the United States' bellicose foreign policy? Opposing Perspectives on the Drone Debate pulls no punches in answering these questions as five scholars square off in a lively debate over the ethics of drones and their contentious use in a point-counterpoint debate. The contributing authors are some of the foremost thinkers in international affairs today, spanning the disciplines of philosophy, sociology, political science, and law. Topics debated range from the US's contested policy of so-called "targeted killing" in Pakistan's tribal regions to fears over the damaging effects such weaponry has on our democratic institutions to the more abstract moral questions raised by killing via remote control such as the duty to capture over kill.

Killing Bin Laden

by Bradley Jay Strawser, Killing Bin Laden Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Killing Bin Laden books, Killing bin Laden: An Ethical Analysis is a short treatise on the possible ethical justification for the U.S. mission to kill Osama bin Laden. After rejecting the standard justifications most commonly used in support of the killing, Strawser ultimately argues that the killing was ethically permissible as an act of defensive harm on behalf of innocents. The book contends bin Laden was morally responsible for a collection of unjust threats such that he was liable to be killed. Moreover, the many unique features of the bin Laden case –such as the use of pre-emptive harm and the collective agency of al-Qaeda – do not defeat that liability. The monograph also includes discussions of the apparent violation of Pakistan's sovereignty and the morally dubious celebrations of bin Laden's death, among other morally relevant issues.

Download Killing Bin Laden A Moral Analysis books, Strawser examines several possible ethical justifications for the killing of Osama bin Laden and finds nearly all of them wanting.

Contemporary Debates On Terrorism

by Richard Jackson, Contemporary Debates On Terrorism Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Contemporary Debates On Terrorism books, Contemporary Debates on Terrorism is an innovative textbook, addressing a number of key issues in terrorism studies from both traditional and 'critical' perspectives. This second edition has been revised and updated to cover contemporary issues such as the rise of ISIL and cyberterrorism. In recent years, the terrorism studies field has grown in quantity and quality, with a growing number of scholars rooted in various professional disciplines beginning to debate the complex dynamics underlying this category of violence. Within the broader field, there are a number of identifiable controversies and questions which divide scholarly opinion and generate opposing arguments. These relate to theoretical issues, such as the definition of terrorism and state terrorism, substantive issues like the threat posed by al Qaeda/ISIL and the utility of different responses to terrorism, different pathways leading people to engage in terrorist tactics and ethical issues such as the use of drones. This new edition brings together in one place many of the field’s leading scholars to debate the key issues relating to a set of 16 important controversies and questions. The format of the volume involves a leading scholar taking a particular position on the controversy, followed by an opposing or alternative viewpoint written by another scholar. In addition to the pedagogic value of allowing students to read opposing arguments in one place, the volume will also be important for providing an overview of the state of the field and its key lines of debate. This book will be essential reading for students of terrorism studies and political violence, critical terrorism studies, security studies and IR in general.

Freedom Fighters

by John Humphries, Freedom Fighters Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Freedom Fighters books, Freedom Fighters covers a violent episode in recent Welsh history shunned or relegated to the sidelines by more conventional historians. By drawing together various sources, the author has produced a highly compelling narrative of a period when a group of Welshmen declared war on England with gelignite and fire bombs. Two died, others were jailed in this struggle for Welsh independence. Could it happen again? Or is yesterday's Welsh patriot doomed to become tomorrow's terrorist? 'Freedom Fighters' provides a fascinating insight into Welsh patriotism on the extremist fringes.The principal focus of the book is the role of the two main protagonists of Mudiad Amddiffyn Cymru (MAC), the Movement for the Defence of Wales, Owen Williams and John Jenkins. Welsh consciousness is uncomfortable with the memory of the Sixties' sabotage campaign directed by this secret, extremist organisation at water pipelines, Government offices and the Prince of Wales. No matter what the authentic voice of democratic nationalism might think of these foot soldiers in Wales's forgotten war, they cannot be ignored. This book tells the story of this remarkable campaign from its inception in 1963 up to the establishment of the Welsh Assembly and considers to what extent the direct action of the Sixties' picked up again by the holiday home arsonists a decade later, helped shape a political environment in which the governing class became more receptive to Welsh aspirations.
