Peter Singer, one of the world’s most influential philosophers, considers the ethical issues surrounding globalization. Singer discusses climate change, the role of the World Trade Organization, human rights & humanitarian intervention, & foreign aid, showing how a global ethic rather than a nationalistic approach can provide illuminating answers to important problems.
"One World" reflects Singer’s characteristically effortless prose & gift for making important & difficult ideas accessible to non-specialists... Singer does an exemplary job of presenting a strong utilitarian position on central ethical concerns of globalization... In so doing, he provides a wealth of analysis & insightful suggestions on global political reform.... One World’s fresh ethical analyses of crucial global issues should make it required reading for most any intellectual today."—Julian Friedland, The American Philosophical Association Newsletter
