Jean Elshtain examines how the myths of Man as Just Warrior and Woman as Beautiful Soul serve to recreate and secure women's social position as noncombatants and men's identity as warriors. Elshtain demonstrates how these myths are undermined by the reality of female bellicosity and sacrificial male love, as well as the moral imperatives of just wars.
