Through a combination of the illuminating overviews composed by the editor and readings drawn from important traditional and contemporary sources, MacKinnon's ETHICS provides students with an introduction to both ethical theory and the moral debates surrounding a variety of contemporary issues. Edited with the intention of providing reader friendly, but not superficial, access to many complex concepts, ETHICS is a comprehensive and clear-sighted introduction to both the general and specific guises ethical deliberation is obliged to take.
