The adversary professions - law, business, and government among others - typically claim a moral permission to violate persons in ways that if not for the professional role, would be morally wrong. Lawyers advance bad ends and deceive, business managers exploit and despoil, public officials enforce unjust laws, and doctors keep confidences that, if disclosed, would prevent harm. Ethics for Adversaries is a philosophical inquiry into arguments that are offered to defend seemingly wrongful actions performed by those who occupy what Montaigne called "necessary offices".

Recently I've been interested in Ethics, but I'm no expert. This is a well landed ethics book, you won't feel laden by lots of philosophy terminology or theories since the author treats you as a non specialist. Applbaum gives a solid argument and guides you through different profession perspectives (since he sees professions as qualified entities for social roles) and the social part each represents. Interesting perspective, this book surely made me cogitate and opened my mind to different views and new understanding. Of course this is no "I can't get this book down" kind of reading, but is really bearable and at the end leaves you with a sense of confort feeling you have broken restrictive mental models about professional life and behaviour. Very nice book, recommendable.
