The book identifies issues and perspectives that should be discussed before a disaster strikes. It is not a how-to manual. It is wide ranging introduction to ethical foundations and perspectives. Part 1 covers the basics of ethical thinking in the western world. You can read representative selections from the book courtesy of Amazon's "Look Inside" feature.

I've used this book in class a number of times. It sparks engaging discussions and provides conceptual tools to inform those discussions. Between the author's conspiracy theories and the idea that institutional racism is behind every tough decision or botched response by emergency managers, this book is of very limited value to professionals in the field of emergency management.

While having the time to ponder the plight of disadvantaged people in a disaster is admirable, the idea that public consensus be gained before emergency decisions are made during a crisis serves to demonstrate the true divide that exists between the author and the real world of emergency management professionals during actual emergencies.
