Transforming Justice is defined as a specialized social construct that occurs when individuals are in a position to secure rights and correct injustices due to their possession of specific power. In this book, Thomas McMahon details the framework for this concept and illustrates its unique relevance stemming from its ability to integrate the abstract concepts of rights, power, and justice. The focal concept is concretized and exemplified through the examination of the lives of eight twentieth century leaders, whose profiles illustrate their enactment of transforming justice in various forms. Observations and conclusions are offered to integrate transforming justice with current social, philosophical, and theological thinking. Ethical Leadership Through Transforming Justice fulfills the goal of showing how power affects the exercise of rights and justice in society.
