About this book


We are currently in a period of rapid global change that is of profound importance, but the nature of which is difficult to comprehend. A crucial element in any such comprehension must be an understanding of its ethical dimension since ethical ideas enter into the structure of international orders. Particular ethical questions are also, of course, of great intrinsic interest and importance. This book covers both aspects through an analysis of key concepts and issues.
