Conflict Resolution Day 2012 Book Signing

October 18, 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Saunders Hall Courtyard

Brien Hallett, faculty of the Matsunaga Institute for Peace, will be signing his book: Declaring War.

In his book, he offers a detailed analysis of the declarations of 1812, 1898, and the War Powers Resolution of 1973, to demonstrate the extent of the organizational and moral incapacity of the Congress to declare war. This book invokes Carl von Clausewitz's dictum that "war is policy" to explain why declarations of war are an integral part of war and proposes two possible remedies – a constitutional amendment or, alternatively, a significant reorganization of Congress. It offers a comprehensive historical, legal, constitutional, moral, and philosophical analysis of why Congress has failed to check an imperial presidency.

Come at 4:30 for an address by the author and Q&A. The first 20 copies sold will be signed by the author.

Light refreshments served.
