The single best book available for providing students with a deep understanding of how the study of ethics will strengthen their moral imagination. A ‘10’ in every respect. I would use International Ethics as a course text for any course on international relations, geopolitics, and security studies.
— Joseph R. Cerami, University of St. Thomas, Houston
I would be hard put to improve on the scope and depth provided by Amstutz’s text. His overview of ethics in international relations is peerless—comprehensive in scope and enlivened by case studies.
— Kathleen M. Gallagher, Associate Professor, Graduate Program in International Relations, St. Mary's University
Using an extensive range of case studies to illustrate the theoretical concepts, Amstutz provides students and instructors with a foundation for dynamic discussions and deeper understanding of ethics and morality in the political world.
— Kerry Crawford, Assistant Professor, James Madison University
An excellent and comprehensive set of case studies on pretty much any topic you would want to teach in an international ethics course.
