This project has been influenced and makes use of the following material:
Singer, "How Are We to Live? Ethics in an Age of
Self-Interest," Prometheus Books, New York, 1995. This book is a call to live
reflectively and ethically. An ethical approach to life looks
at the world as a whole and is open to all perspectives when making
decisions, with an aim to reducing the pain and suffering of others.
S. Goldstein, "War and Gender: How Gender Shapes the War
System and Vice Versa," Cambridge University Press, 2001. This book is an examination of
the near-total exclusion of women from combat forces, through history
and across cultures. The conclusion drawn is that killing in
war does not come naturally to either gender, and that gender norms
often shape men and women to the need of the war system.
Alexiyevich, "War's Unwomanly Face," translated from the Russian by
Keith Hammond and Lyudmila Lezhneva, Progress Publishers, Moscow, 1988.
