Praise for The Morality and Global Justice Reader:
“This is an important book with newly written state-of-the-art papers on all aspects of global justice. It will be an invaluable resource for researchers and a good basis for undergraduate and postgraduate courses. If you really want to know where the research frontier is today you need to buy this book!”
—Professor Søren Holm, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Medical Ethics

“The unusual breadth and richness of this collection make it a distinctive addition to the burgeoning literature on global justice. Prof. Boylan’s expansive interests and good taste have resulted in a volume with a surprising number of novel and interesting contributions.”
—David Wasserman, Director of Research, Center for Ethics at Yeshiva University

“Many of the most serious and urgent problems facing humanity are global, from climate change and wealth inequality to resource shortage, war, migration, and religious and racial intolerance. While ethics presumes to apply to all people, most moral theorizing to date has presupposed a national rather than a global framework. Michael Boylan’s reader of original essays corrects this shortcoming by focusing on ethical problems seen from a global perspective. Some essays cover foundational aspects of normative ethics but the novelty is the global perspective and the emphasis on application of theory. With helpful sectional introductions, abstracts, and keywords, the volume should become a valuable resource for teachers, students, and, especially, policymakers.”
—Peter Simons, Trinity College Dublin

Praise for Morality and Global Justice: Justifications and Applications
“Boylan makes a daring effort to take on the broad scope of global ethics in a manageable and comprehensive way. His introduction of the worldview imperatives in this context is imaginative and offers a way of engaging students while holding them accountable for their views.”
—Robert Paul Churchill, George Washington University

Morality and Global Justice meets the challenge of combining traditional ethics and moral theory with contemporary global concerns . . . an excellent introduction for undergraduates and an engaging review for more advanced scholars.”
—Naomi Zack, University of Oregon
