Traditions of International Ethics by Terry Nardin
Book DescriptionThis is the first comprehensive study of how different ethical traditions deal with the central moral problems of international affairs. Using the organising concept of a tradition, it shows that ethics offers many different languages for moral debate rather than a set of unified doctrines. Each chapter describes the central concepts, premises, vocabulary and history of a particular tradition and explains how that tradition has dealt with a set of recurring ethical issues in international relations. Such issues include national self-determination, the use of force in armed intervention or nuclear deterrence, and global distributive justice. Written by leading specialists in the US and UK, this book treats the subject of international ethics in an encyclopaedic way. It allows readers to identify internal tensions within, as well as points of agreement and disagreement between, a wide variety of traditions.

Books By Author Terry Nardin
Michael Oakeshott's Cold War Liberalism, Hardback (May 2015)
In this book, leading scholars from East Asia and beyond debate Michael Oakeshott's views on liberal democracy and totalitarianism and their implications for East Asia today. His ideas on rationality in politics, the nature of liberal democracy, and how democracy can defeat anti-liberal politics are explored in ten penetrating essays.
Lectures in the History of Political Thought, Paperback (March 2007)
Presents Oakeshott's memorable lectures on the history of political thought, delivered each year at the London School of Economics, that deal with Greek, Roman, mediaeval, and modern European political thought.
Terror, Culture, Politics, Paperback (January 2006)» View all books by Terry Nardin
Takes a look at the politics of American culture in the wake of the 2001 terrorist attacks. This work takes as axiomatic and, therefore, as demanding careful scrutiny the connection between culture as creative expression and culture in the broader sense of the beliefs, values, and habits that members of a society hold in common.
