Just and Unjust Military Intervention: European Thinkers from Vitoria to Mill

Stefano Recchia (Cambridge) and Jennifer Welsh’s (Oxford) volume, Just and Unjust Military Intervention: European Thinkers from Vitoria to Mill (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press 2013), examines the question of when it’s politically, morally, and legally correct for one country to intervene in the civil war of another, and highlights how it has been a long-standing subject in history and political philosophy. Only have time for a chapter? Check out Chapter 11, Stefano Recchia’s essay entitled “The origins of liberal Wilsonianism: Giuseppe Mazzini on regime change and humanitarian intervention.”
