Morality Play is an ideal supplement for ethics courses, offering a case study approach that is both flexible and practical. It provides three alternative methods of organization for universal teaching approaches: contemporary moral problems, ethical theories, and moral principles. The introduction illustrates how to effectively use case studies in the classroom and provides a short review of the fundamentals of argumentation and critical thinking. Featuring ten new case studies, the latest edition continues to spotlight some of the most controversial, thought-provoking issues in ethics today. Themes such as crime and punishment, life and death, habitat and humanity, liberty and coercion, and value and culture are made relevant through insightful case studies drawn from newspaper accounts, legal opinions, and other factual sources. The cases present discrete problems designed to make readers examine their abstract notions about morality.

This book offers a transnational feminist response to the gender politics of torture and terror from the viewpoint of populations of color who have come to be associated with acts of terror. Using the War on Terror in Afghanistan and Iraq, this book revisits other such racialized wars in Palestine, Guatemala, India, Algeria, and South Africa. It draws widely on postcolonial literature, photography, films, music, interdisciplinary arts, media/new media, and activism, joining the larger conversation about human rights by addressing the problem of a pervasive public misunderstanding of terrorism conditioned by a foreign and domestic policy perspective. Deb provides an alternative understanding of terrorism as revolutionary dissent against injustice through a postcolonial/transnational lens. The volume brings counter-terror narratives into dialogue with ideologies of gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, class, and religion, addressing the situation of women as both perpetrators and targets of torture, and the possibilities of a dialogue between feminist and queer politics to confront securitized regimes of torture. This book explores the relationship in which social and cultural texts stand with respect to legacies of colonialism and neo-imperialism in a world of transnational feminist solidarities against postcolonial wars on terror.

„Keinem vernünftigen Menschen wird es einfallen, Tintenflecken mit Tinte, Ölflecken mit Öl wegwaschen zu wollen. Nur Blut soll immer wieder mit Blut abgewaschen werden.“ „Die Waffen nieder!“ gehört zweifellos zu den wichtigsten pazifistischen Schriften des 19. Jahrhunderts und löste bereits kurz nach Erscheinen ein gewaltiges Echo aus. Der Roman schildert die packende Geschichte der Baronin Martha Althaus, die im Zuge kriegerischer Auseinandersetzungen tragische Verluste erleidet - und zur überzeugten Pazifistin wird. Die Friedensnobelpreisträgerin Bertha von Suttner protestiert mit diesem Roman gegen das sinnlose Verschwenden von Menschenleben und die menschenverachtenden Grausamkeiten im Krieg.
