I am reading Preemption by Alan M. Dershowitz. It discusses the history and legality of preventative and preemptive war, as well as targeted assassinations. This book is changing my view of preemption from something that is never morally justifiable to that of a very complex issue that will confront us with increasing frequency as terrorism and our responses to it occur more frequently.
