Publisher Comments:

The essays in this volume present the latest beliefs of some leading contemporary moral and political philosophers on the issue of assisting the foreign poor. Topics focus around the themes of political responsibility of governments of affluent countries to relieve poverty abroad and the personal responsibility of individuals to assist the distant needy. This timely volume will interest scholars in ethics, political philosophy, political theory, international law and development economics, as well as policy makers, aid agency workers, and general readers interested in the topics.

Book News Annotation:

Bringing together works by scholars of ethics, political philosophy, political theory, and international law, Chatterjee (philosophy, U. of Utah) presents 12 essays on the international duties of non- interventionist humanitarian assistance and the moral consequences of global interdependence. Approaching the material from Utilitarian, Kantian, Rawlsian, feminist, and other diverse perspectives, the authors consider such topics as the problem of distance in morality, national responsibility and international justice, women and theories of global justice, human rights as foreign policy imperatives, human rights and the law of peoples, human rights and cultural diversity, and the obligations of global justice. A companion volume on the humanitarian military intervention, Ethics and Foreign Intervention (2003), is also available.
