Moral Claims in World Affairs
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
This collection of essays explores in general terms the nature of the moral claims common in global politics and the phenomenon of partisan cosmopolitanism in particular. Detailed discussions are presented of the attempts to rescue a single body of human ideals from the multitude of systems that presently prevail, of the group, rather than universal basis of human morality, of the perennial tension between ‘realism’ and ‘idealism’, of human rights, justice and evil in the politics of the Powers.

Vincent ("Western Concepts of a Universal Moral Order"), W.H. Smith ("Justice: National, International or Global?"), A.L.
