The most hotly contested policy issues of our day are those that are framed in moral terms, with one or both sides seeking to use government authority to enforce certain norms of behavior. This popular book examines eight such cases--all updated or new for this edition. The authors approach these contentious issues impartially and analytically, in a way that is intended to foster thoughtful class discussion and responsible political consideration.The editors' introductory chapter surveys the subfield of morality politics, discusses its salient characteristics, and then presents an analytical framework for understanding how issues that are contested in moral terms differ from those that divide people according to economic self-interest. The topics covered in this edition include updated chapters on abortion; the death penalty; gay rights; hate crimes; religion in public life; gun control; and animal rights; plus a brand new chapter on global warming.Each case study presents a history of the issue; outlines the ways the issue has been contested within the American political system; surveys trends in public opinion and mobilization concerning the issue; and considers whether the unfolding of the issue validates the editors' basic premises on morality politics. Each case also includes a guide to books, films, and online resources for further research on the topic.
