Swords and Plowshares: Jewish Views of War and Peace
With terrorism and violence pervasive worldwide and much of the Middle East in a state of war, the age-old concerns about war and peace have fresh relevance. What insights can Judaism offer on the subject? Is war ever justified, and under what circumstances? This timely new book presents relevant texts—biblical, rabbinic, medieval, and contemporary—along with examples from modern history, and suggests questions for discussion and contemplation.
