Now in a comprehensively revised and updated edition, International Ethics cogently demonstrates that moral values and ethical reasoning are indispensable in global politics. Through balanced arguments and a wide-ranging selection of case studies, Mark R. Amstutz convincingly demonstrates that moral norms are an essential element of foreign policy and that ethical analysis is central to the study of international relations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In this updated and revised edition (1st ed., CH, Jan'00, 37-3018) Amstutz (Wheaton College) emphasizes the relevance of moral principles to international politics. Twenty-five updated and/or new cases are employed in this study to demonstrate that morality is essential to foreign policy. These cases are among the central and topical world problems subjected to scrupulous evaluation: human rights, war, economic sanctions, international economic relations, the ethics of foreign intervention, and promotion of global justice. Amstutz takes to task the realist tenet that international politics is the inherent pursuit of power and economic interest. He claims that both states and non-state participants adhere to a common moral foundation that influences major decision making. Amstutz is quite successful in presenting his viewpoint discussing NATO intervention in Kosovo, Carter's human rights policy, South Africa reconciliation, and U.S. intervention in Libya. The book is well-written and accessible to professionals and those who have an avid interest in global politics. It makes a significant contribution to the development and study of theory of international relations. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readership levels. * CHOICE *
An excellent resource. I'm delighted to have this important issue handled in such a practical and substantive manner. -- Nicole Bibbins Sedaca, chair, Global Politics and Security Concentration, Georgetown University
