Amazon.com description: Product Description:

This volume presents the idea that great power carries with it great moral obligation to reform the international system. It is centrally concerned with the nature and operation of international moral norms. It shows that great secular power correlates to an increased moral responsibility for the just conduct of the world. This work also emphasizes the often overlooked fact that important normative constraints on power exist already, so that even Great powers must act with a degree of restraint and prudence.

Highlights a timely debate about the goals and ambitions of liberal Great Powers, no longer constrained from intervention by the balance of terror of the Cold War. Features cross-cultural issues, essays, and contributors from Europe, North America, and Asia. Arguments are concerned with pragmatic international ethics, not theory, and are written in a clear and concise manner.
