Excellent attempt to tackle some big 'post-Cold War' issues,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Warrior's Honour: Ethnic War and the Modern Consciousness (Paperback)
Ignatieff has produced an excellent book. It does not read like a random collection of previously published articles and he tackles sensitively and philosophically some of the big issues that are raised by 'modern' conflicts that the world has seen since the end of the Cold War. Examines difficult issues such as the role of ethnicity and so-called 'ethnic hatreds' as somehow abstracted from the real security needs of citizens in the Balkans and Africa and whether the neutrality of teh Red Cross is appopriate in a world of conflicts in which the evil are often obvious. Highly recommended, but do not expect heavy historical detail on individual conflict situations.
