Slavery in Your Chocolate?

Posted: 10 de February de 2012 by Fernando Furtado in Call for Papers, Event

Dear Colleagues:

As you consider textbook adoptions for the fall, I hope you will consider Consuming Choices: Ethics in a Global Consumer Age (2010, Rowman and Littlefield).  It explores whether consumers have moral obligations to avoid purchasing products implicated in unethical practices such as slave labor, animal suffering, or environmental degradation.  Concise (150pp.), and using real-world examples (e.g., chocolate production involving child slavery), Consuming Choices introduces students to the troubling practices often associated with products they buy, as well as to basic moral concepts and arguments (including the collective action problem).  Feedback from colleagues using the book in classes has been positive.  For an examination copy, just click on https://rowman.com/ISBN/9781442204300 .

Thanks for your consideration.

Sincerely,

David
