9780415255769: Humane Warfare

The decision to fight 'humanitarian wars' - such as Kosovo - and the development of technology to make war more humane, illustrates the trend in the West to try to humanise war, and thereby humanise modernity. This highly controversial and cutting-edge book asks whether the attempt to make war 'virtual' or 'virtuous' can succeed and whether the west is deluding itself (not its enemies) in thinking that war can ever be made more humane.
Christopher Coker's radical conclusion is that Western humanitarian warfare is in fact an endgame as other non-Western societies will make sure it does not succeed. Eminently readable, this book combines theory with accounts by politicians and serving military personnel, alongside illuminating literary insights. It will be vital reading for all those interested in international relations and strategic studies and defence issues, including journalists, students and politicians.

About the Author:

Christopher Coker is a Reader in International Relations at the London School of Economics. He is the author of War and the Illiberal Conscience, Twilight of the West and War and the Twentieth Century (1994).

Review:

..." Coker has an important argument. Stripped of its refinements, his case is that the West has attempted in recent years to wage war for humanitarian purposes, in a humanitarian way, and that effort has largely failed.... A grimy and cold U.S. special forces soldier or British Special Air Service trooper designing targets in the Tora Bora cave complex would probably find the remark either obscure or offensive, but it has a nub of truth. Coker scorns attempts to make war overly clean or precise, and with considerable erudition, he lays out why it is both dangerous and implausible to do so. "Foreign Affairs."
