Summary:
"Featuring essays by scholars working in a variety of subjects, [this book] presents diverse perspectives on dilemmas posed by potential conflicts between loyalties to specific institutions or professional roles and more universalistic conceptions of moral duty. Beings with a philosophical exploration of theories of loyalty, both Eastern and Western, then moves on to examine several problematic situations in which loyalty is often a factor: partisan politics, the armed forces, and lawyer-client relationships"--From publisher description.
