Summary
Interdisciplinary discussion of the normative underpinnings of political governance from Ancient Mesopotamia to modern AmericaThis volume examines continuities and change in the normative underpinnings of both ancient and modern practices of political governance, public duties, private virtues, and personal responsibilities. As such, it stands at the cross-disciplinary intersection between the practice of democratic citizenship and the exercise of political ethics. Contributors address law and morality in history, from Ancient Mesopotamia and Enlightenment Europe to modern America and the new millennium's scientific and technological transformations; the links among different systems of belief; and complex ethical issues in domestic and international democratic governance in the context of today's globalized world
