'This extensively revised edition of a well-known collection of essays more than meets the already high standard of earlier versions. The seventeen essays collected here bring expert focus on the key ethical issues of the day, with contributions from most of the major authorities in the field. This is an essential teaching collection for courses on ethics and international affairs and international political theory more generally.' -- Chris Brown, professor of international relations, London School of Economics 'The newest edition of Ethics and International Affairs is an invaluable resource for course instructors and researchers in this rapidly expanding field. The new preface helpfully situates 'international ethics' within the broader study of world politics. Each of the chapters offers sophisticated normative analysis of important ethical issues in international relations, from some of the most distinguished scholars in the field today. As an instructor for a graduate course in International Ethics, I am delighted to find so many of the wonderful EIA articles I include on my reading list... together in one volume.' -- Fiona Robinson, associate professor and director of graduate studies, Carleton University 'This collection of essays, from leading scholars in their field, represents the best of contemporary writing on normative issues in global affairs. They chart with clarity and insight some of the most important current debates about how the world might become more just.' -- Tim Hayward, professor of environmental political theory, University of Edinburgh
