1 Pacifism: A Philosophical Analysis”, first printed in Ethics, Vol. 75 (1965) pp. 259–71. Reprinted in R. A. Wasserstrom (ed.) War and Morality (Wadsworth: 1970) and (in a slightly altered form) in Rachels, James (ed.) Moral Problems (Harper and Row: 1971). My page references are to the Rachels volume.
