A review of the book, Conscience at War: The Israeli Soldier as a Moral Critic by Ruth Linn is presented. The book is an original, daring and necessary study of a major sore on the Israeli body politic: conscientious objection. The phenomenon was almost unknown prior to the invasion of Lebanon in 1982. A great amount of material — eight out of eleven chapters — is a compilation of previously published articles that have been revised for inclusion in the book. This fact is all too obvious. A master argument runs through the whole composition, but the seams are visible and the argument is repetitive. Nonetheless, there are outstanding merits to this study, not least its valuable contribution toward compelling us to look into our conscience.
