Editorial Reviews


"The challenges posed by poverty are both universal and particular. To meet them, we need social science and policy making to be informed by the diverse normative frameworks through which poverty is viewed around the world. The essays in this collection maintain the high standard of previous Ethikon volumes, offering riches to general readers and specialists alike. Poverty and Morality will enable us to both appreciate the constraints that exist in dealing with poverty cross-culturally, and discover possibilities for creative and constructive solutions both at home and abroad."
- Stephen C. Angle, Wesleyan University

"Combining economics and sociology with philosophy and theology, this book brings multiple moral traditions into dialogue about the ever more complex problem of global poverty. It will be of use to students and scholars in many academic traditions, and it provides food for thought for people of conscience in all the major cultures of our interdependent world."
- Richard Madsen, University of California, San Diego

"Poverty and Morality: Religious and Secular Perspectives is a thoughtful and engaging book on an important subject. It will be of interest to people in a wide variety of disciplines, including philosophy, comparative ethics, political theory, and development studies. The individual essays are clearly written, interesting as stand-alone pieces, but especially instructive because they are set in the context of other traditions' treatment of these same questions. Poverty and Morality offers a wealth of rich, detailed arguments on how different traditions have framed ethical issues connected to poverty, which is very instructive, given the current debates on global justice. Throughout this volume, the various authors not only connect the authoritative texts and assumptions of various different ethical traditions with the political and intellectual world in which they were writing, but also address the perennial questions of the scope of our responsibility to ourselves and others, which are raised by the existence of the poor in our midst."
- Margaret Moore, Queen's University, Canada

"The papers are thorough, authoritative, and often read like encyclopedia entries.... When internal disagreement within some tradition occurs, the authors will occasionally note this and argue for one view over another. The book offers a good point of entry into these traditions and their views on poverty. As such it will be useful primarily to undergraduates and others looking for a straightforward and reliable account of these concerns.... Recommended...."
- M.A. Michael, Austin Peay State University, CHOICE

Book Description

This multiauthored book explores how many influential ethical traditions - secular and religious, Western and non-Western - wrestle with the moral dimensions of poverty and the needs of the poor. The basic questions addressed by each of these traditions are linked to several overarching themes regarding poverty, and the essays are framed by an introductory background chapter and a comparative conclusion.
