Ethics, War, and The Jewish Political Tradition

Rabbi Shai Held

Dr. Michael Walzer Rabbi Shai Held

What determines whether a war is just or unjust? What is "connected criticism" and why does it matter so much? What (if anything) do classical Jewish sources have to teach us about modern politics? Michael Walzer is one of the leading political philosophers of his generation, and the author of extremely important works on just and unjust wars, nationalism, Zionism, political ethics and more.
