This is a comprehensive collection of more than 60 new, newly-revised and classic readings on 14 contemporary moral debates. In addition to more familiar issues, such as abortion, euthanasia, preferential treatment, animal rights and the environment, the volume includes coverage of less familiar but equally important topics, such as immigration, political correctness, the use of drugs, the compensation of victims of crime, free speech, world hunger and economic justice. The book encourages the student to think critically about a wide range of practical moral issues. These features make it a useful text for introductory courses in ethics.
