Understanding Ethics introduces the framework of moral philosophy to analyse contemporary moral issues and perennial human dilemmas. The book has been expanded from ten chapters to fourteen. A new chapter on War, Terrorism and Violence has been provided. In addition, Noel Preston has undertaken a complete revision, updating his work to reflect developments in bioethics (e.g. stell cem research, cloning, and genetic patents; genetically modified cropping; biodiversity; impact on developing countries); education and the workplace (e.g. ethics for teachers and schools, ethics of disciplinary processes); global issues (e.g. ethics of population and poverty, global governance and global citizenship); war, terrorism, and violence (e.g. capital punishment; war, including "just war theory;" and torture); the environment (e.g. Earth Charter and eco justice; animal rights; ethics, global warming, and energy policy); and sexuality (e.g. same sex marriage, human rights).
