Summary
Some of our most fundamental moral rules are violated by the practices of torture and war. This collection of Shue's work on the matter explores two possible exceptions to the prohibition on all but defensive wars, humanitarian military intervention and preventive war to eliminate weapons of mass destruction, are evaluated here; and one possible exception to the principle of discrimination, Michael Walzer's 'supreme emergency', is sharply criticized. Two other fundamental issues about the rules for the conduct of war receive extensive controversial treatment.
