Charles A. Beard
CHARLES AUSTIN BEARD (November 27, 1874 – September 1, 1948) was, with Frederick Jackson Turner , one of the most influential American historians of the first half of the 20th century. For a while he was a history professor at Columbia University
Columbia University
but his influence came from hundreds of monographs, textbooks and interpretive studies in both history and political science. His works included a radical re-evaluation of the founding fathers of the United States , who he believed were motivated more by economics than by philosophical principles. Beard's most influential book, An Economic Interpretation of the Constitution of the United States (1913), has been the subject of great controversy ever since its publication. While frequently criticized for its methodology and conclusions, it was responsible for a wide-ranging reinterpretation of American history of the founding era

Just War
JUST WAR THEORY ( Latin
Latin
: jus bellum iustum) is a doctrine , also referred to as a tradition , of military ethics studied by theologians , ethicists , policy makers , and military leaders.
