Ethics are more than a personal philosophy.

From the crimes of Bernie Madoff to the accusations of war crimes and torture to the massive greed-inspired fraud perpetrated by the financial institutions around the world, this new edition of The Complete Idiot's Guide(r) to Understanding Ethics, Second Edition, helps clarify the history and evolution of ethics and their application to real life in the twenty-first century.

?Covers ethics in such hot button topics as politics, war, medicine, and business and finance

?Features up-to-date ideas on ethical behavior on the Internet when dealing with privacy issues

?Discusses the personal ethics surrounding reproductive issues

Book News Annotation:

New to the second edition of this general guide to ethics is an expanded focus on medical and reproductive ethics with examples from recent developments in war, politics and business. Ingram and Parks, both professors of philosophy at Loyola University, cover both theory and history and fully explore ideas such as divine command theory and the ancient Greek virtue ethics. Like others in the series, this volume contains separated short sections, such as "Definitions" or "Moral Musings." No references are provided, although recommendations for books and websites are included. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
