"Peter Singer may be the most controversial philosopher alive; he is certainly among the most influential." New Yorker; "Philosopher Peter Singer holds a mirror to the policies of the wealthiest nation-state - the United States - and the reflection is not flattering. In this morally compelling work, Singer calls for a new ethic that will serve the interest of all who live on the planet." Sydney Horton, Audubon; "Peter Singer writes, as always, lucidly and with relentless logic. Getting states to behave ethically is a heroic aspiration, but this book will give even the most obdurate realist much to think about." Gareth Evans, President, International Crisis Group, former Australian Foreign Minister; "Timely and thoughtful... A refreshing intellectual integrity in Singer's efforts to assess the facts on the ground." Andres Martinez, New York Times Book Review; "This thought provoking book should stimulate debate about how to ameliorate the problems caused by globalisation." Wildlife Activist"Vom Verlag:
One of the world's most influential philosophers here considers the ethical issues surrounding globalization. Peter Singer discusses climate change, the role of the World Trade Organization, human rights and humanitarian intervention, and foreign aid, showing how a global ethic rather than a nationalistic approach can provide illuminating answers to important problems. The book encompasses four main global issues: climate change, the role of the World Trade Organization, human rights and humanitarian intervention, and foreign aid. Singer addresses each vital issue from an ethical perspective and offers alternatives to the state-centric approach that characterizes international theory and relations today. Posing a bold challenge to narrow or nationalistic views, Singer presents a realistic, new way of looking at contemporary global issues-through a prism of ethics.
