Editorial Reviews

Review

On rare occasions one comes across a book that functions excellently as a textbook and that also has the conceptual clarity and sophistication to enlighten even the most senior of researchers and professors. Mark R. Amstutz has written such a book. (Journal Of Peace Research)

Amstutz successfully demonstrates that the study of international ethics requires not just knowledge of moral theory but also the wisdom to apply principles to thorny practical and political decisions. (Millennium: Journal Of International Studies)

Amstutz's insistence on the central place of morality is a welcome and well-reasoned addition to the liberal-realist debate in interantional theory.... Amstutz animates his treatise with more than a dozen short representative case studies ranging from U.S. intervention in Haiti to Thucydides's History of the Peloponnesian War. Supplementary examples are useful and illustrative, especially the intricate weave of morality and ethics issues from nuclear weapons and the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) to the problems of human rights abuses and economic sanctions. Highly recommended. (Choice)

Amstutz uses argument and case studies to show that moral values are an essential element of international relations and that international ethics are foundational to global politics. (Reference & Research Book News)

Praise for earlier editions: Provides a well-written overview of key debates that effectively employs a number of post-Cold War case studies to generate a series of 'moral reflections' on international ethical dilemmas..... (International Affairs)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very well written & easy to digest even after reading a lot. Especially enlightening for those who want to approach the topic more from the angle of political science than philosophy (though it does a fine job in breaking down the ethical theories too). Great selection of case studies--they clarify how the concepts apply in actual practice. I have to teach a high school global ethics class for the first time this year, and after reviewing several books over the summer, this one will definitely be my primary teaching resource.
