From the Publisher:

Evenly balanced between theory and applications, this text shows students how to establish an ethical theory and how to apply it to a range of specific moral issues. Using many recent cases and examples, the text examines ethical problems in such areas as mercy killing, personal relations, business, sexuality, medicine, and the environment.

From the Back Cover:

Jacques P. Thiroux first published ETHICS: THEORY AND PRACTICE in 1977 in order to educate readers about ethical theory and to have them apply what they learn to specific problems (e.g., taking human life; lying, cheating, stealing, and breaking promises; establishing ethical practices in business; honoring ethical obligations in medicine; and so on). Together with case studies written by the author, ETHICS: THEORY AND PRACTICE continues to provide students with a solid foundation in understanding classic and contemporary moral problems.
