Global Ethics, along with its companion volume Global Justice, will aid in the study of global justice and global ethical issues with significant global dimensions. Some of those issues directly concern what individuals, countries, and other associations ought to do in response to various global problems, such as poverty, population growth, and climate change. Others concern the concepts that are commonly used to discuss such issues, such as "development" and "human rights." And still others concern the legitimacy of various phenomena that structure the global scene, such as national borders, the institutions of national sovereignty and self-determination, and attitudes such as nationalism and patriotism.
In recent decades, literature on such issues has started to build up in the Western philosophical tradition. Until now, though, no up-to-date sample of this literature has been available to students and other interested parties. These two books, companion volumes sold separately, fill this gap by providing a sample of the best recent work on these themes.

for a text book its good. I suppose you’d have to be interested in ethics to begin with. It has a lot of interesting essays in it. I suppose the class depends on the teacher and mine was good.

The extent of international law is not a very strong one – most countries are governed on a code of honor – ethics. “Global Ethics: Seminal Essays” is a compilation of various essays on the subject of the ethics that the leaders of the world should follow – and how some of them do not and don’t seem to be changing their ways anytime soon. Subjects such as world poverty, hunger, and tyrannical governments are the main focus, but other issues are touched on as well. “Global Ethics: Seminal Essays” is a complete and through anthology of essays from many scholarly individuals – a must for community library world politics collections.
