Front Cover
Raimond Gaita
UWA Publishing, 2010 - History - 222 pages
This is a book that explores nationalism, intractability, the point of no return, and the jurisdiction over war crimes. In Gaza: Law, Morality and Politics, editor Raimond Gaita brings together a thought-provoking collection of essays by experts on the subject of conflict. The book is a companion to a series of lectures of the same name held in 2009 at Australian Catholic University. Following the Israeli Army invasion of the Gaza strip, the reader is left with questions of law, morality, and politics - a minefield of ethical dilemmas to challenge the moral code we live by.
