It is particularly pressing in times like ours, when dramatic developments put under severe strain moral constraints on political action, while our trust in politicians is sorely tried by their words and actions. This book is a timely contribution from prominent philosophers to the public debate, exploring the fundamental problem of the relationship of politics and morality and a string of specific issues: Should political morality be more permissive of deception, manipulation, and violence? How to judge politicians who have compromised themselves on our behalf? Is there room for morality in international relations? Is patriotism a virtue? What are the rights and wrongs of lying and deception in politics? What are the moral costs of policies that keep out most of those seeking immigration or asylum? May we use torture in the 'war on terror'? What are the moral hazards of military obedience?"@en ;
