A guide to navigating the twenty-first century’s ethical minefields

Life in Aotearoa New Zealand in the early twenty-first century presents us with many controversial ethical issues: abortion, poverty, online behaviour, commercial sex, pornography, internet downloading, recreational drug use, social inequality, animal rights, data protection, criminal justice. . . They confront us with the task of working out how we should live, as individuals and communities.

This book examines practical ethical issues that affect people in their everyday lives. Written from a New Zealand perspective, using real-life examples, it examines the ethics of how we should live.
