The war in Iraq is over, so we are told, but huge questions remain unanswered. Why were we lied to about the existence of weapons of mass destruction? Why do we still not know how many Iraqis died in the invasion? Why was John Howard so eager to commit Australian troops? Was the invasion legal under international law? And how can we reconcile this critical questioning with the knowledge of how Iraqis suffered under Saddam Hussein?

In Why the War Was Wrong, leading Australian writers give their answers. Arguing from legal, political, historical, philosophical and humanitarian standpoints, they make a passionate case for the primacy of our responsibilities to our fellow human beings. This is an accessible and powerful book. It is a book you must read.
