Author(s): Michael Ignatieff
"Since the early 1990s, Michael Ignatieff has traveled the world's war zoes, from Bosnia to the West Bank, from Afghanistan to central Africa. In THE WARRIOR'S HONOUR Ignatieff charts the rise of the new moral interventionists - the aid workers, reporters, peacekeepers, Red Cross delegates, and diplomats - who believe that other people's misery is of concern to us all. He brings us face to face with the new ethnic warriors who have escalated post-modern war to an unprecedented level of savagery. He draws startling realisations about the ethics of engagement, the limited force of moral justice in a world of war, and the clash between those who defend tribal and national loyalties and those who speak the universalist language of human rights. Hard-hitting, passionate, urgent, THE WARRIORS'S HONOUR is a profound and searching exploration of the troubled connection between the zones of safety and the zones of danger that configure the modern world."
