Editorial Reviews


From the reviews:

“The book attempts to assess the many ethical and practical consequences of this markedly unequal division of the world’s resources. … The encyclopedia deals at length with some of the most profound ethical and political questions of our time … . for readers whose moral or political views are not prescribed for them by an all-powerful state or an all-embracing religion, this substantial and penetrating book will provide valuable guidance on matters of vital importance to the world.” (K. C. Fraser, Reference Reviews, Vol. 26 (7), 2012)

Format: Hardcover
Too much stuff stuffed under the umbrella of Global Justice--if all this, where's Plato's account of the just state, or some discussion of Gandhian economics, or an article about the eco-economist of the twentieth century, Herman Daly, or the nonviolent movements around the world, or much much more. The anthology already has too many entries and given their brevity it is more like a glorified index. Amazingly the editor seems to be the best available expert on 15-30% of the topics.
