Editorial Reviews


"...offers a major theoretical contribution to the study of international ethics....Frost's work is one of those rare works which is ambitious theoretically and provides responses to some pressing concrete problems, all the while opening up fruitful areas for further thought....one of the most important recent works on ethics and world affairs." American Political Science Review

"This is a thorough discussion and may be useful course material." Ethics

Book Description

Most questions commonly asked about international politics are ethical ones. Yet, ethics is accorded a marginal position within the academic study of international relations. This text examines the reasons given for this, and evaluates those ethical theories that do exist within the discipline.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jonathan Dunne on October 5, 2000
Format: Paperback
In this work, Dr. Frost attempts to bring international ethics into the field of international relations. What makes this book especially interesting, is his constitutive theory that looks at ethics from a Hegelian perspective. This book is excellent reading for those interested in non-positivist International Relations, and his theories could form the basis of an important new school of thought in contemporary IR. Dr. Frost's writing is very easy to follow and not to complicated for those not completely versed in the discipline. An advatage to this book is the ethical dilemas he poses are topical. I would recommend this book to people who are interested in critical theories of international relations but fear its often dull prose, or those wanting something little different. This book is a good and challenging read.
