MEDIA REVIEWS
This worthwhile collection on international ethics offers stimulating and informative analyses about the nature and role of political morality in global society. The study is clearly written and well-organized, providing an accessible and useful introduction to the increasingly important subfield of international ethics. Reccomended for general collections on international affairs. * CHOICE *
All of the essays in the book are good. This is a welcome addition to a growing corpus and I would recommend it to all interested in these questions. * International Affairs *
This thoughtful collection of essays moves beyond the skeptical question of whether morality applies internationally, asking how it applies and engaging in moral reasoning about particular cases. Taken individually the sections are well constructed. Taken as a whole the sections follow a nice thematic progression. * Ethics: An International Journal of Social, Political, and Legal Philosophy *
This book will work excellently as an introductory text in international ethics, and it also provides a rich array of perspectives for researchers as well as policymakers. * Journal of Peace Research *
The book's approach suggests that moral imperatives can and should play a role in international relations. The contributors are singularly aware that the answers are not simple; that terms such as 'just war,' 'humanitarian intervention,' and 'distributive justice' need and deserve greater attention and more precise definition. . . . (T)he articles in this volume should instigate some serious rethinking about the entire range of issues contained in the study of international relations and, perhaps, even give rise to a cautious but hopeful optimism. -- Michael L. Krenn, University of Miami
