The Oxford Handbook of Practical Ethics

Edited by Hugh LaFollette

Oxford Handbooks

The Oxford Handbook of Practical Ethics is a lively and authoritative guide to current thought about ethical issues in all areas of human activity--personal, medical, sexual, political, legal, and beyond. Twenty-eight topics are covered by leading figures in their fields: each provides a map of the ethical terrain, explaining how the debate has developed in recent years, engaging with the most notable work in the area, and pointing to directions for future work.
