LIB-360 The Ethics and Politics of War

This course provides students with a historical perspective on the involvement of world powers, including the United States, in various global and local conflicts. Both the political underpinnings and the social effects of this involvement are examined from the vantage point of philosophical and political theories of war, ethics, and social justice in the Western intellectual tradition. Students will assess these theories and examine their application in a variety of settings, analyzing their ethical consequences and their effect on history.
