Jeremy Waldron, Jeremy Waldron is Professor of Law at the New York University Law School
"'The attacks of September 11 and the response to them of the Bush presidency sorted out where academics truly stood on the great moral issues of the day. Where many bowed to power and panic, Jeremy Waldron's integrity under pressure, his unfashionable commitment to reason and to ethical absolutes, and the beauty of his writing have made him not only the leading political thinker of his generation but now also clearly one of the most courageous." - Conor Gearty, London School of Economics
"Waldron's luminous intellect beams piercing light into the dark corners of current American political culture and then illuminates unexpected avenues back toward civility and decency. His essay on torture is a special gift, characteristically uniting moral passion with analytic imagination." - Henry Shue, University of Oxford
"Throughout...[Waldron]...displays an admirable talent for illuminating novel dimensions to urgent political problems...Jeremy Waldron's work has much to offer" - James Edwards, Criminal Justice Intern with JUSTICE
"This volume enriches the immense body of writing on this subject that has accrued since the September 11th attacks...The author is particularly well qualified to discuss this subject matter having dedicated most of his career to the study of law...The author is an elegant and analytical philosopher of law and this latest work is interesting not as much for the arguments discussed as for the points expressed in support of them, which are often articulated with very useful linguistic distinctions and subtle conceptual analyses" - Diritto questioni pubbliche
