Practical ethics by Peter Singer ( Book )
31 editions published between 1969 and 2011 in 11 languages and held by 2,245 libraries worldwide
"Peter Singer's remarkably clear and comprehensive Practical Ethics has become a classic introduction to applied ethics since its publication in 1979 and has been translated into many languages. For this second edition the author has revised all the existing chapters, added two new ones, and updated the bibliography. He has also added an appendix describing some of the deep misunderstanding of, and consequent violent reaction to, the book in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland where the book has tested the limits of freedom of speech." "The focus of the book is the application of ethics to difficult and controversial social questions: equality and discrimination by race, sex, ability, or species; abortion, euthanasia, and embryo experimentation; the moral status of animals; political violence and civil disobedience; overseas aid and the obligation to assist others; responsibility for the environment; the treatment of refugees. Singer explains and assesses relevant arguments in a perspicuous, non-doctrinaire way. He structures the book to show how contemporary controversies often have deep philosophical roots; and he presents an ethical theory of his own that can be applied consistently and convincingly to all the practical cases." "The book's primary readership remains teachers and students of ethics whether in philosophy or some other branch of the humanities or social sciences. However, such is the clarity of the book's style and structure that it should interest any thinking person concerned with the most difficult social problems facing us as we approach the twenty-first century."--Jacket.

"How can one person make the world a better place? Henry Spira's extraordinary life as an activist shows that an individual can make a difference. By thinking about how giant corporations might be vulnerable, he found ways to change their practices and save the lives and health of animals all over the United States. Spira has led Revlon, Avon, and other cosmetics companies to change their testing procedures so that the words "not tested on animals" now appear on most cosmetic products - and are true. He stopped bizarre sex experiments on cats at a famous American museum, saved millions of American cattle from having their faces scorched with hot iron brands, and saved even larger numbers of animals from pointless drug testing. This book tells the inspiring story of a lifelong activist whose creativity and careful thought set the standard for the animal rights movement in the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET.
