The Purpose of Ethics By Michael Austin
eBook (ePub): $10.00
The Purpose of Ethics describes an original moral theory similar in nature to Preference Utilitarianism. However, it is a major unifying theory, reconciling the apparently conflicting differences... More > between moral theories that have been prevalent in the twentieth century: between consequentialist and motivist traditions for example; and between the Utilitarian, Kantian and Liberal Egalitarian approaches. Unlike previous theories, which are grounded on different, unexplained assumptions, the purposive moral theory in this book is deduced step by step to produce, as its solid basis, the purposes of human societal life. These purposes are then analysed in detail in terms of their causal factors to derive a 'society model' containing 285 factors, which represent social behaviour in the areas of medical ethics, sexual morality, human liberty, crime and punishment, socio-economics, military ethics, animal ethics, environmental ethics and health & safety.< Less

As the character of conflict in the 21st century evolves, the Army’s strength will continue to rest on our values, our ethos, and our people. Our Soldiers and leaders must remain true to these... More > values as they operate in increasingly complex environments where moral-ethical failures can have strategic implications. Most of our Soldiers do the right thing--and do it well--time and again under intense pressure. But we must stay ever vigilant in upholding our high professional standards, mindful of the strains that accompany repeated combat deployments in the longest war our country has fought with an all-volunteer force. We must think critically about our Professional Military Ethic and promote dialogue at all levels as we deepen our understanding of what this time-honored source of strength means to the profession today.< Less
A Typology of Arguments About Drone Ethics By Mary Manjikian

Prints in 3-5 business days
In recent years, international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) like Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have described U.S.-led drone strikes in Pakistan, Syria, Afghanistan, and... More > elsewhere as atrocities and even war crimes. Both the International Committee of the Red Cross and Human Rights Watch have asked whether the United States is violating the Law of Armed Conflict (LOAC), with Human Rights Watch suggesting that the United States should be prosecuted for its actions. At the same time, the International Committee for Robot Arms Control (ICRAC) has called for greater regulation of what they term “killer robots.” How might military leaders best respond to these allegations? In this insightful analysis, Dr. Mary Manjikian offers a framework for understanding the different types of anti-drone arguments made by policymakers, NGOs, academics, and other states.< Less
Dissent And Strategic Leadership Of The Military Professions By Don M. Snider & Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $14.97
Prints in 3-5 business days
Over the past 5 years, the War on Terrorism has produced many unforeseen results for the U.S. Army, something not unexpected by those who study war as we do here at the Strategic Studies Institute... More > (SSI). One event, however, was truly unexpected—the participation in 2006 by several Army flag officers in the “Revolt of the Generals.” It was unexpected because the professional ethic of the Army in the modern era has held that, in civilmilitary relations, the military is the servant of its Constitutionally-mandated civilian leaders, both those in the Executive branch and in the Congress. Thus, as Samuel Huntington noted over 5 decades ago, “loyalty and obedience” are the cardinal military virtues. This precept has remained embedded in the Army’s professional ethos to this day, especially for the strategic leaders of the Army Profession. An act of public dissent is to be exceptionally rare, undertaken only after the most careful analysis and determination of its absolute necessity.< Less

The Ethics of Drone Strikes: Does Reducing The Cost of Conflict Encourage War? By James Igoe Walsh et al.
Paperback: $15.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Armed unmanned aerial vehicles—combat drones—have fundamentally altered the ways the United States conducts military operations aimed at countering insurgent and terrorist organizations.... More > Drone technology is on track to becoming an increasingly important part of the country’s arsenal, as numerous unmanned systems are in development and will likely enter service in the future. The increasingly frequent use of drones raises profound questions about the nature and morality of warfare involving asymmetrical risks between opposing belligerents. Concerned citizens, academics, journalists, nongovernmental organizations, and policymakers have raised questions about the ethical consequences of drones and issued calls for their military use to be strictly regulated. This level of concern is evidence that the future of drone warfare not only hinges on technical innovations, but also on careful analysis of the moral and political dimensions of war. Regardless of whether drones are effective weapons...< Less
Autonomous Weapon Systems: A Brief Survey of Developmental, Operational, Legal, and Ethical Issues By Jeffrey L. Caton et al.
Paperback: $17.98
Prints in 3-5 business days
Stories about unmanned vehicles now appear regularly in the national news—and not always in good ways. Within the last 2 years, privately-owned drones have crashed on the White House lawn,... More > surveilled the U.S. Embassy in Paris, and buzzed German Chancellor Angela Merkel. When used in military operations, autonomous weapon systems (AWS) have the potential to save lives as well as apply lethal force across land, sea, and air. In this Letort Paper, Mr. Jeffrey Caton posits that the development of AWS policy and doctrine should characterize autonomy not as a discrete property of a given system, but rather as a function that varies in its strategic, operational, and tactical context and mission application. Further, he argues that AWS design, planning, and operations should be tempered with the purposeful consideration of human judgment and control as well as legal and ethical standards that foster international credibility.< Less

More > U.S. Army profession lacks an institution l ethical framework and a means of peer-to-peer self-governance. The frameworks the Army has may imply , but they do not explicitly dictate, an Army ethic. Other English-speaking g nations’ ethical constructs can inform the development of an Army Ethic which serves to protect our organizational and individual honor from moral and ethical lapses which do great harm to the institution, undermine the American public trust, and hinder mission accomplishment. This Paper describes the problem, provides a review of literature, including current Army artifacts, reviews partner nation military ethics, and sketches the necessary philosophical underpinnings. The Paper also addresses the importance of promulgation, non-toleration, and the necessity for the Army to act as a learning...< Less
