It includes representatives of traditional moral theories as well as contemporary works on moral theory. Following these are essays that address today's most philosophically interesting and controversial ethical and political issues, from abortion and animal rights to the environment, capital punishment, war, genetic engineering, euthanasia and the distribution of medical resources, sexuality, and marriage and the family. The book also covers many of the central problems of political theory, ranging from the ideal state, patriotism, and civil disobedience, poverty, drugs, and free speech to racial and sexual oppression, multiculturalism, and affirmative action."--Jacket." ;
