Ethics and International Relations, Second Edition, offers a comprehensive introduction to the philosophical issues raised by international politics. Presupposing no prior philosophical knowledge and deliberately avoiding the use of technical language, it is ideally suited for political philosophy, applied ethics and international relations courses. Revised and updated, new material includes coverage of the war on terror, the impact of globalization, and ideas of cosmopolitan governance.
  • Clearly and thoughtfully organized, it proceeds logically from general morality and international relations to issues surrounding just war theory and global justice
  • A crisp, analytical treatment presented with a student-sensitive approach and informed by real world issues
  • Covers a wide array of subtopics
  • From inside the book
