Just War and Jihad

Full Product Description

In this collaborative examination two diverse groups of scholars look at Western and Islamic approaches to war, peace, and statecraft from their own perspectives in an effort to bridge the gap of knowledge and understanding between the two traditions. Scholars in religious ethics and international law examine the substantial body of literature on the just war tradition that has been produced over time by historians, theologians, ethicists, and international lawyers. The Islamic tradition, which in both its classical and contemporary forms presents a rich variety of materials for discussions of statecraft, including issues connected with the justification, conduct, and ultimate aims of war, is then assessed by a group of leading Islamicists. The two major themes stressed by the contributors are the "historical" and "theoretical" approaches to war and peace in the two great religious and cultural traditions. In every case, the essays are broadly historical and comparative in nature."Just War and Jihad", together with its companion volume "Cross-Crescent and Sword: The Justification and Limitation of War in Western and Islamic Tradition" (Greenwood Press, 1990), represents the outcome of interdisciplinary and cross-cultural dialogues.

Just War and Jihad by James Turner Johnson; John Kelsay was published by ABC-CLIO in May 1991. The ISBN for Just War and Jihad is 9780313273476.
