Strategy, Ethics, and the War on Terrorism


In two long, thoughtful essays, Albert Pierce, the first director of the Center for the Study of Professional Military Ethics at the U.S. Naval Academy, explores the shifting terrain where strategy and ethics collide in the war on terrorism. The third piece of this important work is a detailed case study of the United States' ill-fated intervention in Haiti. Pierce, a professor of military strategy at the National War College, is currently directing a multi-year project on ethical challenges and the future of conflict.
