Summary/Description It is thirty years since the first publication of Michael Walzer’s classic book, Just and Unjust Wars. For many scholars, particularly those coming to questions of ethics and war from backgrounds in philosophy, history, politics, and international relations, Just and Unjust Wars has been and remains to this day the first port of call. Beyond academe, it is used to teach new soldiers about the place and nature of ethics in their chosen profession, and remains the book to which interested general readers first turn when the wars they witness or see reported provoke troubling moral questions. It is not hard to see why it has had such an impact. As a number of contributors to this special issue note, it is a book that rewards careful re-reading, not least because it steadfastly refuses to shy away from the hardest of dilemmas, even when clear answers are difficult to give.
