Abstract

This article engages with the critique of just war that lies at the heart of Maja Zehfuss’s War & the Politics of Ethics. It argues that while Zehfuss’s critique misses the mark in several important respects, it nevertheless does us a tremendous service by laying bare the irony of just war. In doing so, it reminds us not only of the limits and dangers of just war thinking, but also of why it deserves our grudging respect.
