What People are Saying About This

Margaret Moore

This is an excellent volume on an important subject. A number of very highly respected contributors bring a range of perspectives to bear on several carefully framed questions related to boundaries. The book will interest a large number of people, in ethical and political philosophy, international law, political science, and international relations. It is an important contribution to the debate over boundaries and does the rare service of bringing together a wide variety of ethical traditions to bear on the issue.
Margaret Moore, University of Waterloo

Lee Yearley

The subject of this book is an extremely important one. The treatments are good, and the whole is considerably more than its parts. I strongly recommend it.
Lee Yearley, Stanford University
