Brian Orend , a philosophy professor at the University of Waterloo, Canada, has also taught at Columbia University in New York City.
``For many reasons this book...is a valuable contribution to the
just war tradition.'' -- J. M. Betz -- Choice
``Opening a new topic in Kant scholarship as well as a new perspective on international relations, Brian Orend has delivered an impressive first book that is likely to refresh and stimulate debate.'' -- Thomas W. Pogge, Columbia University
``With a nice combination of insight and ingenuity, Orend discovers and constructs a Kantian account of just war -- which is marked by a unique emphasis on jus post bellum, the justice of post-war settlements. He then develops this account precisely and elegantly....The result is an important contribution to the philosophical analysis of morality and war.'' -- Michael Walzer, Institute of Advance Studies, Princeton University
