Got this book for ethics 101 and it actually is amazingly insightful. I sold back my other books but kept this. It allows you to understand the foundation of the United States and our law as government also better think rationally about rights and Liberty. Great historians, would be lawyers or ethics and debate lovers. Even the religious study part was fascinating. Loved the commentary for Christianity and Muslim as it helps understand complex government and political conflicts today stemming from religious rights.

Excellent book containing original writings on ethics.

This is an excellent book which contains original writings by important authors, both ancient and modern, on the topic of ethics. This is a companion volume to the videos and the book “Ethics in America: Study Guide.” Naturally, anyone with access to a good library could find all these essays and excerpts there. Perhaps, one could find them all online nowadays. However, I found it convenient to have them at-hand in this book.
