Praise for the Fourth Edition
"An excellent stimulus for classroom, church, and community consideration of complex current concerns . . . . Highly recommended."--John Hart, Boston University School of Theology
"Continues its tradition of new material, new analyses, and new ways of thinking about the most relevant concerns of the twenty-first century."--Mary Jo Iozzio, Barry University
The case method approach, effective in disciplines from business to law, forms the backbone of this classroom-proven work. Designed specifically for undergraduate and beginning graduate courses, this latest revision includes ten new cases, including cases on immigration, homelessness and foreclosures, water, ethical issues in the workplace, closing hospital emergency rooms, executive pay, living together vs. marriage, same-sex marriage, and physician-assisted death. In addition, the remaining cases have been updated to keep the book contemporary with "real life" issues in order to provide productive discussions and fruitful learning.
