Synopsis

What is the nature of justice? How should health care be distributed within a nation? When, if ever, should nations resort to warfare? Should we be moving towards deeper levels of global governance? This is a book about justice: the justice of a nation's major institutions, and the justice of how nations should interact on the world stage. Michael Walzer is one of the most prominent social critics in North America, and he has written acclaimed works about the morality of warfare, the distribution of health care and political power, the need to tolerate social difference, and the nature of justice itself. In this fascinating study, Brian Orend offers the first clear and comprehensive look at Walzer's entire body of work. He deals critically with controversial subjects - from bullets, blood and bombs to the distribution of money, political power and health care - and surveys both the national and the international fields of justice. This is an important book which provides a thought-provoking and engaging look at some of the most pressing and controversial topics of our time.
