Comes in two parts and did not really do much for me. I was aware that he was a big name in this field and was curious if anyone - Lizard_King, RSharp? - had read this and had any thoughts. It struck me as naggingly ahistorical (or "synchronic") throughout in its treatment of the concepts as divorced from the particularities and practicalities of military history. I'm not going to say the concept of just wars hasn't been significant to the development of constraints upon war in a certain vague and abstract sense, but it seems implicit to his article that it's somehow been a wellspring to them. Which again seems like a weird and ahistorical theory, as to me constraints on (and in) war have flowed from practical problems and the cumulative experience of those concerned with war.
