"Ethics and International Relations" offers a comprehensive introduction to the philosophical issues raised by international politics. Presupposing no prior philosophical knowledge and deliberately avoiding the use of technical language, it is ideally suited for use on both applied ethics and international relations courses. The author begins by setting the international scene and discusses the dispute between cosmopolitan ideals and national sovereignty, and the moral scepticism of the political term 'realism' which has been so influential in the study of international relations. Subsequent chapters explore the practical applications of ethical theories to issues of global importance. Including suggestions for further reading in each chapter as well as a full bibliography, this book not only introduces readers to material that has attracted critical discussion, but also offers a complete general survey of the principle issues in ethics and international relations.
