AbstractThis book discusses some of the major issues concerning ethics education in the military today, including class content, modes of instruction, theoretical underpinnings, and the effect of cultural and national differences in the ethics classroom. It also explores whether such programs are best run by military officers, chaplains or academic philosophers, and reflects whether it is feasible to develop common principles and approaches for the armed forces of all Western countries.
