Can I take on international clients living within the boundaries of repressive and aggressive regimes? Should I continue to take on speculative real estate developments in lieu of recent economic events? When should I draw the line between my responsibility to the client and to the community served? When does comfort trump efficiency? Architects, like all working professionals, will inevitably be faced with ethical dilemmas in the course of their practical career, and the examples above represent three of the fifty case studies that Thomas Fisher, Dean of the College of Design at the University of Minnesota, addresses in Ethics for Architects, the next book in Princeton Architectural Press's Architecture Brief series. Drawn from Fisher's more than thirty years' experience as an architect, writer, and educator, and structured along the six tenets of the American Institute of Architect's Code of Ethics, Fisher's straightforward analysis of architecture's most relevant and pressing issues is written in a style that is accessible to the most amateur philosopher, and should appeal to working architects and students alike. He draws on a diverse range of ethicists to support himself, from Nietzche, to Confucius, to Kant.

Thomas Fisher works at the New Economics Foundation in London on issues of development finance, organizational development and accountability in both southern and northern countries Previously he was engaged in development training and research in India for five years.
