From the publisher: The ethical issues included deal with family and culture (female circumcision, marriage and divorce, sexuality, domestic violence); state policy (religious freedom and human rights, family planning); economics and ecology (land reform, land development, child labor, insider trading); and public health and medicine (AIDS, organ donation, reproductive technology, care of the disabled). Geared for courses in social ethics, comparative religion, world religions, or cross-cultural studies, the book's introduction provides an overview of world religions, including Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, Sikhism, Baha'i, and Indigenous religions. It also includes material on how to use the case method approach in teaching religious ethics.
