This is the first casebook to focus specifically on engineering and environmental ethics. It features full-length, multi-faceted, real-life cases of design and managerial dilemmas in a variety of settings--together with background readings that illustrate how one can integrate ethical and environmental challenges into engineering decisions, especially ones early in the design process. It presents the dilemmas as descriptively as possible--without revealing what the authors think are "proper" or "good" solutions--and encourages readers to think deeply about real-life situations and to engage in "moral imagination."
