Bending the rules morality in the modern world : from relationships to politics and war by Robert A Hinde ( )
17 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Everywhere stealing, lying and killing are considered wrong. But in some contexts, in war for example, these codes can differ. Robert Hinde argues that understanding the evolutionary origins of our morality and how we bend the rules can help guide us away from global catastrophe and towards a more ethical world. - ;Do-unto-others-as-you-would-have-them-do-unto-you. Who would disagree with this 'Golden Rule'? We regard it as the basis of an absolute and universal morality. And yet it is considered acceptable to kill the enemy in war; for a businessman to do the best for himself; for a lawyer to

Ending war : the force of reason : essays in honour of Joseph Rotblat, NL, FRS by Maxwell Bruce ( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The year 1945 saw both the dawning of the age of nuclear weapons and the creation of the United Nations for the maintenance of world peace. Compared with the huge and continuing outlays of time and money on research and development of weapons since that date, little effort has been devoted to ways of ridding mankind of war and its armaments. Ending War contains sixteen essays on this topic, written by world renowned political thinkers and scientists. The book provides a historical perspective, and puts forward ideas to be pondered by every citizen. The contributors include Mikhail Gorbachev, who first declared 'A nuclear war cannot be won and must not be fought'; Robert McNamara, US Defense Secretary at the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis and of the Vietnam War; and Nobel Peace Prizewinner Joseph Rotblat, the only scientist to resign from the Manhattan Project, where the world's first nuclear weapons were produced

Verification of arms reductions : nuclear, conventional, and chemical by Jürgen Altmann ( Book )
7 editions published in 1989 in English and German and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Anybody concerned about the maintenance of peace in our world, and in prospects of reaching agreements on arms control and disarmament, is bound to be interested in one of the key pre-conditions for related international treaties: the verification of compliance with such treaties. This book presents an up-to-date exposition of the latest developments in science and practice of international verification. It contains an account of the experience with new practical results of scientific research, devoted to solving verification problems in areas where agreements have not yet been concluded. The authors are scientists and practitioners from governments and research institutes in East and West. This book is required reading for anybody interested in the field: especially for decision-makers, government and military experts, natural scientists, technologists, those working in political and historical science. Among the topics covered are: INF Treaty, nuclear test ban, control of mobile missiles, and fissile material, demilitarization of space, stability and reductions of conventional forces, ban on chemical weapons. From the Reviews: "Verfication of Arms Reductions is packed with information and analysis which is vital for arms-control students, negotiators and other practitioners. The strength of the book lies in the science and technology contributions, but there are comprehensive political analyses also which have been written for longevity and are unlikely to become dated too quickly."
