Michael Walzer on War and Justice Press Reviews

'...Orend carefully expounds Walzer's philosophy...exposes tensions between Walzer's 'conventionalism' and his attachment to a minimal but more universal and more consistently nonconsequentialist understanding of morality. Orend deepens our understanding of Walzer and makes a contribution of his own to the discussion of international justice'. Terry Nardin, Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and author of Law, Morality and the Relations of States.
