The Elements of Moral Philosophy with Dictionary of Philosophical Terms

From the Publisher:

A lucid, lively introduction of the major philosophical theories of morality and one acknowledged for its clarity in explaining ethical theory to students
Explains why each theory has been accepted by some thinkers but rejected by others
Important current issues such as abortion, euthanasia, the treatment of non-human animals, and famine relief are discussed in depth to illustrate the theories, and to reveal their implications.
Also widely used in Applied Ethics courses as a brief, affordable text for the ethical theory portion of those courses
New and updated examples, including a new discussion of the recent conjoined twins case in Britain and updated account of the Tracy Latimer case.
New coverage of absolute moral rules and indirect utilitarianism
A new section further elaborates "what a satisfactory moral theory would be like."
