From the book reviews:

"Engineering ethics is a breath of fresh air for those of us who have argued for many years that the engineering profession needs to dramatically widen its sense of ethical responsibility to include issues of war and peace, as well as social justice. The book makes an important contribution to the changing notion of ethical principles in engineering and engineering education. ... makes significant and tremendously important strides in challenging the engineering profession to broaden its sense of ethical responsibilities." (George D. Catalano, International Journal of Engineering, Social Justice, and Peace, Vol. 3 (1-2), 2014)
