Product Details

Editorial Reviews


The book engages with three important questions, and deals with them in great detail and with admirable even-handedness. Chris Armstrong, Social Theory and Practice ...offers one of the most systematic and nuanced treatments to date of a global luck egalitarian approach, and it adds important clarity to the ongoing dialogue about just how global distributive justice can and should be conceived. Further, Tan's writing is a model of both precision and accessibility. He is adept at showing what is at stake in major debates and at identifying and leading the reader through important positions in them. This book would make an excellent teaching tool. Luis Cabrera, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
