While it has many connections to other topics in normative and applied ethics, discrimination is a central subject in philosophy in its own right. It plays a significant role in relation to many real-life complaints about unjust treatment or unjust inequalities, and it raises a number of questions in political and moral philosophy, and in legal theory. Some of these questions include: what distinguishes the concept of discrimination from the concept of differential treatment? What distinguishes direct from indirect discrimination? Is discrimination always morally wrong? What makes discrimination wrong? How should we eliminate the effects of discrimination? By covering a wide range of topics, and by doing so in a way that does not assume prior acquaintance, this handbook enables the reader to get to grips with the omnipresent issue.

The Routledge Handbook of the Ethics of Discrimination is an outstanding reference source to this exciting subject and the first collection of its kind. Comprising over thirty chapters by a team of international contributors the handbook is divided into six main parts:

* conceptual issues

* the wrongness of discrimination

* groups of `discriminatees'

* sites of discrimination

* causes and means

* history of discrimination.

Essential reading for students and researchers in applied ethics and political philosophy the handbook will also be very useful for those in related fields, such as law, sociology and politics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a comprehensive state of the art collection of essays on the ethics of discrimination that will be an invaluable resource for both researchers and students."

Andrew Mason, University of Warwick, UK.

"This volume brings together a set of essays that combine rigorous conceptual analysis and incisive legally and empirically informed approaches on discrimination. Together they provide an indispensable, and timely, guide to understanding and disentangling the philosophical issues that surround the topic of discrimination in all its theoretical and normative dimensions. The Routledge Handbook of the Ethics of Discrimination is the most comprehensive resource to date for all who want to understand what discrimination exactly amounts to and how it bears on current social inequalities."

Magali Bessone, Universite de Rennes I, France.
