This collection of original essays on the ethical and legal implications of humanitarian military intervention presents a variety of normative perspectives. It considers topics such as the just-war theory and its limits, secession and international law, and new approaches toward the moral adequacy of intervention. Written by well-known contemporary philosophers, the essays form a challenging and timely volume that will interest political philosophers and theorists, readers in law and international relations, and anyone concerned with the moral dimensions of international affairs.

'This is a wonderfully inclusive and argumentative collection of essays. Chatterjee and Scheid have brought together some of the best people writing about just war, humanitarian intervention, and political secession. All the hard questions are raised here, and the answers are intelligent and illuminating and, what is most important, sharply contested.' Michael Walzer, Institute for Advanced Study
