From the Athenian attack on Melos to the My Lai Massacre from the wars in the Balkans through the first war in Iraq Michael Walzer examines the moral issues surrounding military theory war crimes and the spoils of war He studies a variety of conflicts over the course of history as well as the testimony of those who have been most directly involved participants decision makers and victims In his introduction to this new edition Walzer specifically addresses the moral issues surrounding the war in and occupation of Iraq reminding us once again that the argument about war and justice is still a political and moral necessity, No description available, What kinds of political arrangements enable people from different national racial religious or ethnic groups to live together in peace In this book one of the most influential political theorists of our time discusses the politics of toleration Michael Walzer examines five regimes of toleration from multinational empires to immigrant societies and describes the strengths and weaknesses of each regime as well as the varying forms of toleration and exclusion each fosters Walzer shows how power class and gender interact with religion race and ethnicity in the different regimes and discusses how toleration works and how it should work in multicultural societies like the United States br br Walzer offers an eloquent defense of toleration group differences and pluralism moving quickly from theory to practical issues concrete examples and hard questions His concluding argument is focused on the contemporary United States and represents an effort to join and advance the debates about culture war the politics of difference and the disuniting of America Although he takes a grim view of contemporary politics he is optimistic about the possibility of coexistence cultural pluralism and a common citizenship can go together he suggests in a strong and egalitarian democracy br, In this eagerly awaited book political theorist Michael Walzer reports his findings after decades of thinking about the politics of the Hebrew Bible Attentive to nuance while engagingly straightforward Walzer examines the laws the histories the prophecies and the wisdom of the ancient biblical writers and discusses their views on such central political questions as justice hierarchy war the authority of kings and priests and the experience of exile br br Because there are many biblical writers with differing views pluralism is a central feature of biblical politics Yet pluralism Walzer observes is never explicitly defended in the Bible indeed it couldn t be defended since God s word had to be as singular as God himself Yet different political regimes are described in the biblical texts and there are conflicting political arguments and also a recurrent anti political argument if you have faith in God you have no need for strong institutions prudent leaders or reformist policies At the same time however in the books of law and prophecy the people of Israel are called upon to overcome oppression and let justice well up like water righteousness like an unfailing stream
