"There is a big need for a brief but well-informed study of Rawls for students and other beginners, complete with a bit of biographical information. Pogge's book is ideal. It is popular without being inaccurate. Pogge is as knowledgeable about Rawls's work as anyone could be, and he is a clear writer and a rigorous thinker."--Thomas Nagel, New York University
"The book is indeed a pleasure to read; serious, clear, substantial, and sensible: it is for me the exemplar of what a book in philosophy ought to be today."--Rudiger Bittner, University of Bielefeld (on the German edition)
