Naval War College Review;Summer/Autumn2004, Vol. 57 Issue 3/4, p17
Academic Journal
The article informs that military leaders, like their civilian counterparts, find themselves on such issues in the midst of numerous, pressing, and conflicting debates. Since the time of Erasmus, and especially since the onset of the technological revolutions of the nineteenth century, whole scholarly disciplines have grown up to determine the aspects of the right or just use of force, legal, moral, ethical, philosophical. The basic documents, treaties, charters, learned writings in numerous languages, are abstruse and rarefied, seemingly far from the usual daily agendas. The Naval War College of the U.S. stands, and has always stood, at the intersection of these debates and considerations; it regularly calls upon students, alumni, and friends to examine these fundamental issues.
