In war we trust : the Bush doctrine and the pursuit of just war by Chris J Dolan( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The consistent theme throughout this book is that significant ethical issues and moral dilemmas have been raised as they pertain to the forceful expression of American power via the Bush Doctrine's assertion of the right to engage in first strikes against states and non-states in the wake of the September 11th 2001 terrorist attacks. This book is intended for those with an interest in political science, history, leadership studies and foreign policy analysis."--BOOK JACKET
Striking first : the preventive war doctrine and the reshaping of U.S. foreign policy( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American foreign policy, governmental institutions, and the public's sense of internal and external security are undergoing significant changes. The Bush Administration's remaking of American foreign policy through an emphasis on a preemptive, first strike doctrine is an important change, since policy is based on the intentions of state and non-state actors - downplaying the advantages of multi-lateralism. Parallel to this change in external action is its attempt to build an internal security apparatus that will likely result in the significant contraction of civil liberties. These policy shifts challenge the very fundamentals of American political life and the perception of the United States throughout the world

Social torture : the case of northern Uganda, 1986-2006 by Chris Dolan( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

As Director of the Refugee Law Project at the University of Makerere, Kampala, Uganda, Dolan offers a behind-the-scenes, cross-disciplinary study of one of Africa's longest running and most intractable conflicts. This book shows how, alongside the activities of the Lord's Resistance Army, government decisions and actions on the ground, consolidated by humanitarian interventions and silences, played a central role in creating a massive yet little recognized humanitarian crisis. Not only individuals, but society as a whole, came to exhibit symptoms typical of torture, and the perpetrator-victim dichotomy became blurred. It is such phenomena, and the complex of social, political, economic and cultural dynamics which underpin them, which the author describes as social torture. Building on political economy, social anthropology, discourse analysis, international relations and psychoanalytic approaches to violence, this book offers an important analytical instrument for all those seeking entry points through which to address entrenched conflicts
