This volume examines general ethical principles and controversies in the social sciences by looking specifically at the recent three-year revision process to the American Anthropological Association's code of ethics. The book's contributors were members of the task force that undertook that revision and thus have first-hand knowledge of the debates, compromises, and areas of consensus involved in shaping any organization's ethical vision. The book-reflects the broad diversity of opinion, approach, and practice within anthropology and the social sciences;-develops ethical principles that reflect core values rather than the latest ethical controversies;-crafts clear, broad statements, increasing the likelihood that the ethical code will be a meaningful part of the daily discourse of practicing anthropologists;-develops the ethical code as a living document, or a process of experience and debate, subject to future revision and amplification;-provides explanation through internet links and other resources, ensuring that the finished product be relevant and vibrant.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In principle, our professional responsibilities are easy to recite and apply equally to us all, regardless of our organizational affiliation or specialty. For each of us, however, fulfilling these responsibilities requires thoughtful planning, resourceful problem-solving, and practiced judgment in specific situations. It is thus essential to keep the conversation going, to continue educating one another about how to do no harm, do some good, and be fair about it. This volume candidly and skillfully explains what is at stake and how we have made important choices in breathing life into ethical principles."

--Edward Liebow, AAA Executive Director

"The special contribution of this volume is that it focuses not on prescriptive ethical rules but on the continuous process of making hard ethical choices faced by all anthropologists. The book strongly emphasizes the ongoing struggles by anthropologists to work in an ethical manner within diverse settings of multiple stakeholders, contradictory values, and continuous change."

--Janet E. Levy, UNC Charlotte
