A unique analysis of the moral weight of warfare today through the lenses of
philosophy and psychology. Philosopher, ethicist, and psychoanalyst Nancy
Sherman explores the psychological and moral burdens borne by soldiers. By
illuminating the extent to which wars are fought internally as well as
externally, this book expands the national discussion about war and the men and
women who fight our nation’s battles. With close-up looks at servicemen and
—women preparing for, experiencing, and returning home from war, Sherman probes
the psyche of today’s soldiers—examining how they learn to kill and to leave
the killing behind. Bringing to light the moral quandaries soldiers
face—torture, the thin line between fighters and civilians, and the anguish of
killing even in a just war—Sherman bares the souls of our soldiers and the
emotional landscape of soldiering. At the heart of the book are interviews with
soldiers, from the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but also from Vietnam
and World Wars I and II.
