The Crescent and the Cross
Muslim and Christian Approaches to War and Peace
Forward by H.R.H. Crown Prince Hassan of Jordan

by Harfiyah Abdel Haleem, Oliver Ramsbotham, Saba Risaluddin


This book explores the shared history of Muslims and Christians and the ways each religion developed laws to regulate wars, based on scriptural authorities. Similarities and differences are noted, as well as how most of these laws still operate in the context of modern international law, while some have yet to be incorporated. Case studies explore the application of these religious precepts to two recent conflict situations: UN humanitarian intervention in Bosnia, and the Iraq-Kuwait war, together with the Allied action.
