About the Book

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, cyber weapons, 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. Ethics Under Fire offers a rare insight into the key issues facing the modern army arising from technology, tactics and terrorism.
