About this book

Arguing that the suffering of combatants is better understood through philosophy than psychology, as not trauma, but exile, this book investigates the experiences of torturers, UAV operators, cyberwarriors, and veterans to reveal not only the exile at the core of becoming a combatant, but the evasion from exile at the core of being a noncombatant.

Reviews

“I found Gertz’s book refreshing and eye-opening. His book offers promise for changing the interpretive paradigm of military ethics instruction and analysis, and for motivating caregivers to reassess their boilerplate civilian judgments of troubled soldiers.” (Matthew Hallgarth, Journal of Military Ethics, Vol. 15 (2), August, 2016)
