"Peter Singer's 'Famine, Affluence, and Morality' is the single most important text in applied ethics. Singer gives us the simplest and most powerful argument in modern philosophy that we must change the way we live fundamentally." --Leif Wenar, Kings College London "Singer's Famine, Affluence, and Morality is an important influential argument that better off people should do more to alleviate poverty. Everyone should read it." --Gilbert Harman, Princeton University "Famine, Affluence and Morality, by a world renowned philosopher, is a must read, particularly for students and scholars of philosophy, sociology, and politics interested in world affairs, poverty and social justice." -- International Dialogue, A Multidisciplinary Journal of World Affairs
