Aggression and Crimes Against Peace (Philosophical and Legal Aspects of War) by Larry May
English | Apr. 21, 2008 | ISBN: 052189431X | 368 Pages | PDF | 1 MB
In this volume, the third in his trilogy on the philosophical and legal aspects of war and conflict, Larry May locates a normative grounding for the crime of aggression-the only one of the three crimes charged at Nuremberg that is not currently being prosecuted-that is similar to that for crimes against humanity and war crimes. He considers cases from the Nuremberg trials, philosophical debates in the Just War tradition, and more recent debates about the International Criminal Court, as well as the hard cases of humanitarian intervention and terrorist aggression.
