Political Studies Review
"An outstanding example of a textbook in international political and ethical theory. Hutchings' extraordinary scholarly analyses make this book a masterpiece."
Central European Journal of International and Security Studies
"Global Ethics guides students through the complex array of ethical dilemmas that constitute the modern international order. With clarity of prose and appreciation of the political and contextual nature of ethical debate, Hutchings provides an outstanding example of a textbook in international political and ethical theory. The practice based reflective exercises and annotated bibliographies make this an ideal teaching tool."
Anthony F Lang, University of St Andrews
"'With her new book, Kimberly Hutchings demonstrates clearly why she is the rarest of scholars: one whose work demonstrates both sophistication and intellectual rigor on one hand, and the utmost lucidity and accessibility on the other. Amongst a number of new texts and collections on global/international ethics in the last few years, Hutchings book will undoubtedly stand out from the crowd."
Fiona Robinson, Carleton University
"Kimberly Hutchings has written a very engaging and accessible introduction to the now growing field of global ethics. She covers both theoretical issues about the contested nature of global ethics and about how it relates to globalization, and the areas of global concern over humanitarian aid, global distributive justice and war and peace."
Nigel Dower, University of Aberdeen
"This book provides an excellent introduction to global ethics and the main theoretical issues involved. It is beyond a doubt the most comprehensive and clearly written introductory book on the subject that I have read."
Garrett Brown, University of Sheffield
