Peter Singer, one of the world's most influential philosophers, here considers the ethical issues surrounding globalization, showing how a global ethic rather than a nationalistic approach can provide illuminating answers to important problems. In a new preface, he discusses how the recent Iraq war and its aftermath have changed the prospects fro the ethical approach he advocates.
One World encompasses four main global issues: climate change, the role of the World Trade organization, human rights and humanitarian intervention, and foreign aid. Singer addresses each vital issues from an ethical perspective and offers alternative to the state-centric approach that characterizes international theory and relations today.
Posing a bold challenge to the narrow or nationalistic views of policymakers, politicians, and leaders in the United States and elsewhere, Singer presents a detailed, practical way of looking at contemporary global issues through the prism of ethics.
The ethics of globalization are urgently in need of reasoned assessment. When a leading ethicist like Peter singer addresses this issue, we should all listen carefully.

Singer has brought to the issue of globalization a lot of insight, powerful analysis and prescription, often cogently expressed and reflective of his erudition, which is clearly both broad and deep.
