The papers collected in this volume represent some of the finest recent work by political philosophers and political theorists in the area of global justice. Covering both theoretical and applied issues, these papers are distinguished by their exceptional quality. Moreover, they give the reader a sense both of the scope of the field as it is currently emerging and the direction that the debates seem to be taking. This anthology is essential reading for anyone serious about understanding the current pressing issues in Global Justice Studies.

With contributions from: Richard Arneson, Charles Beitz, Luis Cabrera, Omar Dahbour, Robert Goodin, Dale Jamieson, John Lango, David Miller, Thomas Pogge, Sanjay Reddy, Mathias Risse, Gopal Sreenivasan, and James Sterba.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

“The volume includes important contributions from established and emerging scholars whose work has helped advance the normative debates on global justice … . Brock’s book offers a sustained, innovative and well-informed discussion of many issues that interest both normative political theorists and more policy-minded scholars. The fact that it manages to communicate clearly with both, and that it constrains them to engage and learn from each other is both to be imitated and applauded.” (Lea Ypi, Res Publica, Vol. 17, 2011)
