Partly Cloudy: Ethics in War, Espionage, Covert Actions, and Interrogation explores a number of wrenching ethical issues and challenges faced by our military and intelligence personnel. David L. Perry provides a robust and practical approach to analyzing ethical issues in war and intelligence operations and applies careful reasoning to issues of vital importance today, such as the question of torture in interrogating detainees, employing espionage to penetrate hostile regimes and terrorist cells, mounting covert action to undermine their power, using discrimination and proportionality in military operations, avoiding atrocities in combat and counterinsurgency, and cultivating moral wisdom.
David L. Perry is director of the Vann Center for Ethics at Davidson College in North Carolina. From 2003 to 2009 he was professor of ethics at the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
