Show Summary Details


This concluding chapter surveys earlier contributions to the comparative ethics of war in Western and Islamic civilizations and places the current book in the context of this literature. It considers how the chapters of this book contribute to an understanding of the evolution of the just war and jihad traditions over time, and how each relates to the idea of holy war. It also summarizes the conclusions we may draw on the mutual influences of each tradition on the other as they developed over time.

Keywords: just war; holy war; jihad; comparative ethics of war
