If states are not to go to war, what should they do instead? In 'The Alternatives to War', James Pattison considers the case for the alternatives to military action to address mass atrocities and aggression. The volume examines the normative issues raised by measures ranging from comprehensive economic sanctions, diplomacy and positive incentives, to criminal prosecutions, nonviolent resistance, accepting refugees and arming rebels. For instance, given the indiscriminateness of many sanctions regimes, are sanctions any better than war?
