Morality & contemporary warfare by James Turner Johnson( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When is the use of military force by a nation morally justified? Why has the long accepted moral requirement to protect civilians from intentional attack eroded in recent years? How can the tendency toward unrestrained warfare between parties with major cultural differences be controlled? In this book, James Turner Johnson refocuses the moral analysis of war on the real problems of today's armed conflicts. Moral debates about nuclear war and annihilation fail to address the problems of actual contemporary uses of military force, Johnson argues. We must address the type of armed conflict that has emerged at the end of the twentieth century: local wars - often inflamed by historical, ethnic, or religious animosities and usually fought with conventional weapons that can be carried by individual fighters."--Jacket
Ideology, reason, and the limitation of war : religious and secular concepts, 1200-1740 by James Turner Johnson( Book )

18 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fundamental aims of this book are two: to explore the interaction between religion and secular society in the formation as well as the dissolution of just war doctrine; and to investigate just war doctrine as an ideological pattern of thought, expressive of a greater ideology. The author reconstructs the development of classic just war doctrine, showing it to be a product of secular and religious forces. From it he traces the growth of the doctrines of holy war and of modern just war. He demonstrates that the blending of two distinct traditions in the late Middle Ages has its counterpar

The war to oust Saddam Hussein : just war and the new face of conflict by James Turner Johnson( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first and only book to provide a moral analysis of the war in Iraq and its implications for the future of war and peacemaking. The War to Oust Saddam Hussein: Just War and the New Face of Conflict addresses the key questions most people are asking today. What should be the standard for pre-emptive uses of military force? What of the other arguments the Bush Administration offered for the need to remove Saddam Hussein and restructure Iraq? What is to be said for the future about the possibilities of fruitful relations between the cultures of the West and of Islam?"--Jacket
Sovereignty : moral and historical perspectives by James Turner Johnson( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sovereignty generally refers to a particular national territory, the inviolability of the nation's borders, and the right of that nation to protect its borders and ensure internal stability. From the Middle Ages until well into the Modern Period, however, another concept of sovereignty held sway: responsibility for the common good. James Turner Johnson argues that these two conceptions -- sovereignty as self-defense and sovereignty as acting on behalf of the common good -- are in conflict and suggests that international bodies must acknowledge this tension. Johnson explores this earlier concept of sovereignty as moral responsibility in its historical development and expands the concept to the current idea of the Responsibility to Protect. He explores the use of military force in contemporary conflicts, includes a review of radical Islam, and provides a corrective to the idea of sovereignty as territorial integrity in the context of questions regarding humanitarian intervention. Johnson's new synthesis of sovereignty deepens the possibilities for cross-cultural dialogue on the goods of politics and the use of military force

Research in retrospect: administrative memoranda of the Denver-Stanford research project by John L Hayman( Book )

5 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Memorandums are provided on the administrative aspects of the joint project of the denver public schools and stanford university, titled "four years of research on the context of instructional television." The purpose of this project was to learn how instructional television could best fit into the total teaching situation, not to determine the effectiveness of educational tv. The teaching field selected for experimentation was elementary school spanish for fifth and sixth graders. A final report presented the general findings of the overall project. The present report was prepared not to duplicate and summarize the final document but to provide school administrators and other responsible groups with a comprehensive text on--(1) how the project was planned and instituted, (2) how it actually operated, (3) what problems were encountered and how they were overcome, (4) what effect it had on the teaching corps, principals, and parents, and (5) what the long-term implications are. Administrative procedures are thus reported that would not normally be included elsewhere. The "why" and "with what results" are covered extensively in more technical reports which can be obtained from either the U.S. office of education or the institute for communication research at stanford university.
