Thomas E. Doyle II is an Associate Professor of Political Science at Texas State University.
This ambitious and creative book is needed now more than ever. Doyle’s riveting development of a nuclear ethics for our time provides a nuanced, interdisciplinary, philosophically-influenced but also pragmatically-grounded achievement for working through one of the most terrifying existential risks of contemporary global politics. This text is essential for courses on international ethics, International Relations, philosophy, and international security.
Thomas E. Doyle’s Nuclear ethics in the twenty-first century is a timely reminder of the existential threat of nuclear war. It makes a compelling case for rethinking nuclear ethics in International Relations through the framework of common security (‘security with’, rather than ‘security against’: p. 68).
