      Neta C. Crawford is the author of Accountability for Killing: Moral Responsibility for Collateral Damage in America's Post-9/11 Wars (Oxford University Press, 2013). Crawford is also the author of two books, Soviet Military Aircraft (1987) and Argument and Change in World Politics (2002), named Best Book in International History and Politics by the American Political Science Association. She has written more than two dozen peer reviewed articles on issues of war and peace. Crawford has served on the governing Board of the Academic Council of the United Nations System, and on the Governing Council of the American Political Science Association.
    Areas of Interest: International relations theory, normative theory, foreign policy decision making, sanctions, peace movements, discourse ethics, post-conflict peacebuilding, research design, utopian science fiction, and emotion.
   She has already written about the massive loss of life, of civilian deaths and injuries, and of the US Budgetary Costs of the Post-9/11 Wars Through FY2019:$5.9 Trillion. On Accountability's dedication page she writes: " I write with the hope and determination that you may live in a less violent world." Professor Crawford argues that the public has a role to play in questions of war and peace, and that this role includes moral responsibility. American military action has inflicted massive harm on civilians. The public is obliged to understand how the American military exacerbates global warming. What role can each of us play in mitigating this global harm? What can our organizations do collectively to ameliorate it, asks Peace Action Maine.
