In this interdisciplinary volume, Heinze and a diverse group of senior scholars explore global ethics through sustainability, justice, and security. They address topics within these categories based on recent world events (BP oil spill, 'War on Terror', UN Climate Conference, for example) with an eye toward reconciling the interests of states and other global power-holders with those of individual human beings and global society as a whole. Using a variety of techniques and approaches, including applied ethics, constructivist social science, normative political theory, and field research and narrative approaches, Justice, Sustainability, and Security not only enhances our knowledge of these issues, but it teases out their moral dimensions and offers prescriptions for how governments and global actors might craft their policies to better consider their effects on the global human condition. The volume thus seeks to illustrate the interplay between the 'theory' and 'practice' of global ethics.Gary Goertz, Social Science Concepts: A Usera#39;s Guide (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2006), 5. ...
