The massive disparity between the relative wealth of most citizens in affluent countries and the profound poverty of billions of people struggling elsewhere for survival is morally jolting. But why exactly is this disparity so outrageous and how should the citizens of affluent countries respond? Political philosopher, Thomas Pogge, has emerged as one of the world’s most ardent critics of global injustice which, he argues, is caused directly by the operation of a global institutional order that not only systematically disadvantages poor countries but is imposed on them by precisely those wealthy, powerful countries that benefit the most from the order’s injustice. In allowing their governments to perpetrate this injustice, Pogge contends that citizens of the wealthy countries collude in a monumental crime against humanity.

In this book Pogge’s challenging and controversial ideas are debated by leading political philosophers from a range of philosophical viewpoints. With a clear and informative introduction by Alison Jaggar, and original contributions from Neera Chandhoke, Jiwei Ci, Joshua Cohen, Erin Kelly, Lionel McPherson, Charles W. Mills, Kok-Chor Tan, and Leif Wenar, this volume deepens and expands the debate over global justice and moral responsibility in the world today.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A welcome attempt to provide an overview of the debate. Many ofthe critics actually agree with Pogge's cosmopolitan premises andconcurrently seek to refine his theory. This is a very worthwhileexercise, since both the originality of Pogge's views on worldpoverty and the severity of poverty deserve elaboration andrefinement."
Ethical Perspectives

"Thomas Pogge is part angry prophet, denouncing severeinjustice, and part analytic philosopher, constructing originalarguments. Jaggar's imaginatively conceived collection of criticscombines some of the best leading scholars with diverse freshvoices, yielding a variegated, vigorous and valuable debate aboutresponsibility for world poverty that carries the analysissignificantly forward."
Henry Shue, University of Oxford

"Thomas Pogge argues that extreme poverty is unjustly maintainedby institutional means, and could be ended at marginal cost. Hisclaims about the causes, remedies and injustice of the presentglobal order are powerfully criticized in this collection, and hiscritics are powerfully taken to task: necessary reading forthinking about global justice."
Onora O'Neill, University of Cambridge

"No philosopher has done more than Thomas Pogge to explain whatmakes the persistence of global poverty so grave an injustice andno other explanation has provoked such a diverse and interestingarray of responses. This very well-edited volume, containingcommissioned essays by a distinguished group of critics and apowerful reply by Pogge, is an invaluable resource for anyoneattempting to assess his work and to understand how philosophy canilluminate debates about global poverty."
Andrew Williams, ICREA and Pompeu Fabra University

"Is global poverty the result of a deeply unjust institutionalorder we have helped to impose? Are there modest and feasibleinstitutional reforms that could eradicate extreme poverty? InAllison Jaggar's fine volume Thomas Pogge's affirmative answers tothese questions receive sustained scrutiny from a distinguishedgroup of philosophers. The result is essential reading for thoseworking on justice across borders."
Paula Casal, University of Reading
