From the Back Cover:

This second edition of Ethics: The Big Questions focuses on the central questions of ethics: What is the nature of morality? Why be moral? What are the requirements of morality? It draws together the best available classical and contemporary readings to make these questions come alive for today's students. Utilitarian, Kantian, and Aristotelian viewpoints are all well represented, and the second edition features updated sections throughout — including 18 new readings — and an entirely new section on multiculturalism.

Unique to this volume is its coverage of three main challenges to ethics: from feminism, which shows how gender is relevant to morality; from environmentalism, which raises the question who is to count in morality; and from multiculturalism, which emphasizes the importance of different cultural perspectives to morality. These challenges must be met if morality is to be justified, and this is the only ethics anthology on the market that presents all three challenges to students for their consideration.
