Editorial Reviews


"John Rawls was the pre-eminent social theorist of the 20th century, but while he drew powerful critics from Robert Paul Wolff and Robert Nozick to Brian Barry, it is only now with Percy Lehning's new book that we have a definitive and comprehensive account of the theory of justice as it evolved over fifty years. Lehning has given students and scholars alike the indispensable introduction Rawls deserves."
Benjamin R. Barber, Distinguished Senior Fellow, DEMOS and Author of Jihad vs. McWorld and Consumed

"No one influenced contemporary political philosophy more than John Rawls, and few scholars knew him as well and studied his work as closely as Percy Lehning. This lucid and well-documented introduction may persuade you that Rawls resembles Pascal's God in one respect: 'A little bit of thinking leads you away from him, a lot of thinking takes you back to him.'"
Philippe van Parijs, Université catholique de Louvain
