Book Description:

"This third edition of Ethics in Practice introduces new areas of controversy in applied and practical ethics, while most assuredly remaining the single best text one can go to for extensive coverage by some of the area's major figures. Alongside coverage of familiar ethical issues such as abortion, free speech, and affirmative action, this revised and expanded edition includes entirely new sections on ethical theory, and war and terrorism, with engaging and accessible intros from the editor. The structure of the book facilitates use by a wide variety of courses and is friendly to the styles of individual instructors. In the end, an anthology of applied ethics must be judged on the philosophical significance of its essays, and whether or not its essays are representative of the excellent material that can now be found in the field. The third edition of Ethics in Practice succeeds on both counts. A great many of the people who currently influence the different issues are featured herein, and with pieces of distinctive philosophical merit. These essays collectively give an excellent perspective on the quality of work that can be found today - admittedly, one often has to look hard - in applied or practical ethics. I strongly recommend this book." --R. G. Frey, Bowling Green State University
