Summary

Now in a comprehensively revised and updated edition, this text cogently demonstrates that moral values and ethical reasoning are indispensable in global politics. Through balanced arguments and a wide-ranging selection of case studies, Mark R. Amstutz demonstrates that moral norms are an essential element of foreign policy and that ethical analysis is central to the study of international relations. He explores two distinct dimensions of international political morality: the role of moral norms in foreign affairs and the ethical foundation of the rules and structures of global society. Although the book considers important conceptual and philosophical challenges posed by the plurality of values in the international community, its major aim is to describe and assess the nature, role, and impact of international political morality on international relations. Amstutz illustrates the role of moral norms in global politics with twenty-five revised and new case studies. The cases are focused on eight major global issues: political reconciliation, human rights, war, unconventional military operations, foreign intervention, economic sanctions, justice among states, and global justice. This clearly written study will be of special interest to students and practitioners of international affairs who are concerned with the role of political morality and ethical judgment in global affairs.
