About this item
Events at Abu Ghraib prison and the 1968 My Lai Massacre show that the behaviour of the military can descend into barbarism. How strong is the military’s commitment to avoiding such atrocities? Ethics Under Fire– a timely and compelling book – asks questions and raises issues the Australian Army can’t ignore. Including chapters on social media and violence, cyberweapons, ethics in special operations, and humanitarian deployments, leading military personnel, aid workers, commentators, and academics discuss the Australian Army’s commitment to behaving ethically, and the challenges involved.
