Along with Jeremy Stangroom, I’m editor of a series of books published by Continuum called Think Now. The series examines central contemporary social and political issues from a philosophical perspective. The books aim to be accessible, rather than overly technical, bringing philosophical rigour to modern questions which matter the most to us. We ask the authors take a stand on political and cultural themes of interest to any intelligent reader, and the result is a number of engaging, provocative books.
The series includes:
Libertarian Anarchy: against the state by Gerard Casey
Historical Redress: must we pay for the past? by Richard Vernon
The Ethics of Trade and Aid: development, charity or waste? by Christopher D. Wraight
Just Warriors, Inc.: the ethics of privatized force. by Deane-Peter Baker
Beyond Animal Rights: food, pets, and ethics by Tony Milligan
Ethics of Metropolitan Growth by Robert Kirkman
Nanoethics: big ethical issues with small technology by Donal P. O’Mathuna
Personal Responsibility: why it matters by Alexander Brown
The Ethics of Climate Change: right and wrong on a warming world by James Garvey
