Margaret Moore reviews Christopher J. Finlay’s “Terrorism and the Right to Resist: A Theory of Just Revolutionary War” (2015)

A study in just war theory:  “Finlay is aware that the rebels and revolutionaries and terrorists that are the subject of his book are often acting in pursuit of reasonable goals that an oppressive state doesn’t allow them to pursue through legitimate means; and he shows that the underlying architecture of just war theory, with its concepts of just cause (human rights), proportionality, necessity, and so on, is nevertheless relevant.”
