How Do I Save My Honor?: War, Moral Integrity, and Principled Resignation

Buy
"A fascinating and urgently needed exploration of moral responsibility in wartime, focusing on the complex realities and demands since 9/11. This engagingly written and well-researched study challenges each of us to honor our better selves." --Richard Falk, University of California, Santa Barbara

"Felice has written the most important moral analysis yet of the Bush-Blair years. He exposes the limits of those who argue from 'moral certainty' and recovers the deeply held democratic principle of 'loyal opposition.' I hope every young and aspiring leader will read this book and ponder its lessons." --Joel H. Rosenthal, Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs

"[Felice's] scholarly backdrop cites just war theory, philosophers from Aristotle to Kant and Thoreau, and his own interview with ethicist Peter Singer, but he relies on case studies of American and British officials and soldiers who resigned, or refused to fight, to carry the argument." --Publishers Weekly, May 2009

How Do I Save My Honor? is a powerful exploration of individual moral responsibility in a time of war. When individuals conclude that their leaders have violated fundamental ethical principles, what are they to do? Through the compelling personal stories of those in the U.S. and British government and military who struggled with these thorny issues during the war in Iraq, William F. Felice analyzes the degrees of moral responsibility that public officials, soldiers, and private citizens bear for the actions of their governments. Examining the struggles of these contemporary men and women, as well as of historical figures facing similar dilemmas, the author weighs the profound difficulties of overcoming the intense pressures of misguided loyalty, patriotism, and groupthink that predominate during war.

Systematic Design for Emergence in Cellular Nonlinear Networks: With Applications in Natural Computing and Signal Processing-
The main problem addressed in this book came out during a Fulbright research fellowship stage at U.C. Berkeley (California, USA, 1996–1998). Then, I had the opportunity to work in the research group of Leon Chua on a subject called CNN (cellular neural/nonlinear network). The CNN, developed in the end of the 1980s was an important step ahead...
