Justice and Democracy: Essays for Brian Barryby Keith Dowding
Pub. Date: 09/15/2004
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
While much has been written about social justice, even more has been written about democracy. Rarely is the relationship between social justice and democracy carefully considered. Does justice require democracy? Will democracy bring justice? This volume brings together leading authors who consider the relationship of democracy and justice. The intrinsic justness of democracy is challenged and the relationship between justice, democracy and the common good examined.
