From violent non-state actors to failed states, the contemporary security environment challenges the norms associated with the law of armed conflict.  How should governments respond ethically to these challenges? The Ashgate Companion on Military Ethics brings together over two dozen experts from around the world to consider the depth of these challenges.

Four contributors to the book discussed the frontiers of military ethics in the twenty-first century: just war historian James Turner Johnson (Rutgers University); Eric Patterson (Berkley Center) on the ethics of post-conflict; Mary Manjikian (Regent University) on preemption; and intelligence and counter-terrorism expert Keith Pavlischek (USMC, ret.) on asymmetric warfare.
