Driven by advances in communication and transportation and rapidly expanding networks of business activity, globalization has made us dependent on people in far corners of the world in ways that were inconceivable at the beginning of the 20th century. This work examines the moral issues and questions that result from the process of globalization.
Globalization is reshaping the lives of all the world's people. International Ethics features in depth coverage on topics such as disease and pollution, the authority of national governments, and international trade and global distributive justice. The work opens with a broad overview of the issues and is followed by a chronology of important events and ideas, detailed examinations of particular issues, brief biographies of significant figures, and annotated lists of print and nonprint resources and organizations active in the area.
