Format: Paperback
I decided to use parts of this book for an undergraduate course that examines social issues from both a philosophical and economic perspective. For those teaching courses similar to mine, I'd suggest using this book only as a supplement. As a philosopher, I was particularly disappointed with the lack of rigorous argumentation in the book. The chapters tend to be structured as, "Economists typically do X. However, X involves takes many philosophical ideas Y for granted. Here is Y, and here are some alternatives to Y." Pedagogically, I would have liked to have seen deeper discussion as to the arguments for and against Y and its alternatives. Right now, the book requires its readers to do a lot of work to figure out: (a) why the differences between rival conceptions of welfare, liberty, equality, and justice really matter, and (b) the relative strengths and weaknesses of these rival conceptions. All this being said, this book might work better for economists trying to get their feet wet in social and political philosophy than for philosophers trying to do the opposite.

Format: Paperback
This is a truly abysmal book; I read it for an undergraduate economics course. This is a dry exposition on a cascade of seemingly arbitrary topics. There is no organization or structure. I would not recommend reading or buying. I am sure there are far better books on the subject matter.
