Summary

RAWLS'S LAW OF PEOPLES
A REALISTIC UTOPIA?

"Like his conception of social justice, John Rawls's vision of a just world has been the subject of heated debate, but its real strengths and weaknesses are becoming apparent only gradually. This excellent volume substantially advances that process, and will benefit anyone hoping to understand how one of the greatest political philosophers addressed some of humanity's most pressing problems."
Andrew Williams, University of Reading
