Arguing About War (2004) collects philosopher Michael Walzers essays on when and why to engage in warfare, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the war on terrorism, and other topics widely discussed since 9/11. Walzer celebrates our military and political leaders increasing use of just war rhetoric, but he fails to explain why it should not be interpreted skeptically.
