9780199652020: Torture, Terror, and Trade-Offs: Philosophy for the White House

Jeremy Waldron has been a challenging and influential voice in the moral, political and legal debates surrounding the response to terrorism since 9/11. His contributions have spanned the major controversies of the War on Terror - including the morality and legality of torture, whether security can be 'balanced' with liberty, and the relationship between public safety and individual rights. He has also tackled underlying questions essential to understanding the practical debates - including what terrorism is, and what a right to security would entail.

This volume collects all Waldron's work on these issues, including six published essays and two previously unpublished essays. It also includes a new introduction in which Waldron presents an overview of his contribution, and looks at the problems currently facing the Obama administration and the UK Government in dealing with the legacy of the Bush White House.

The volume will be essential reading for all those engaged with contemporary politics, security law, and the continuing struggle for an ethical response to terrorism.

Recensione:

The attacks of September 11 and the response to them of the Bush presidency sorted out where academics truly stood on the great moral issues of the day. Where many bowed to power and panic, Jeremy Waldron's integrity under pressure, his unfashionable commitment to reason and to ethical absolutes, and the beauty of his writing have made him not only the leading political thinker of his generation but now also clearly one of the most courageous. ( Conor Gearty, London School of Economics)

Waldron's luminous intellect beams piercing light into the dark corners of current American political culture and then illuminates unexpected avenues back toward civility and decency. His essay on torture is a special gift, characteristically uniting moral passion with analytic imagination. ( Henry Shue, University of Oxford)

Throughout...[Waldron]...displays an admirable talent for illuminating novel dimensions to urgent political problems...Jeremy Waldron's work has much to offer. ( James Edwards, Criminal Justice Intern with JUSTICE)

This volume enriches the immense body of writing on this subject that has accrued since the September 11th attacks...The author is particularly well qualified to discuss this subject matter having dedicated most of his career to the study of law...The author is an elegant and analytical philosopher of law and this latest work is interesting not as much for the arguments discussed as for the points expressed in support of them, which are often articulated with very useful linguistic distinctions and subtle conceptual analyses. ( Diritto questioni pubbliche)
