The question of when to use military force is one of the most difficult that democracies face. What exactly constitutes self-defense and whether to intervene in a humanitarian crisis are questions that can quickly come to define a president's tenure in office. Readers will examine recent examples of military force around the world, whether they were justified, and their controversial legacies.
