Editorial Reviews

Review


"A significant and distinctive contribution to the contemporary philosophical debate on global justice. Globalizing Justice is an exemplar of philosophical analysis that is exacting and rigorous but also sensitive to and informed by the realities of the world. The result is a novel systematic approach to the problem of global justice." --Kok-Chor Tan, Social Theory and Practice


"Richard Miller has given us a work of great political urgency concentrating on the political responsibilities of citizens of wealthy and powerful societies who interact with the world's poor through a complex network of transactions and relationships. The theoretical position he defends is fresh and original and will lead many readers to reconsider conventional ways of thinking about global justice. It will also encourage them to engage more deeply with the literatures of world politics and global political economy, which inform the argument throughout. No other recent book on Miller's subject displays a similar combination of philosophical imagination and deep engagement in the realities of global political and economic life."--Charles Beitz, Princeton University


"In his attempt to discover what obligations citizens of rich countries have to those in the developing world, Miller breaks a new path between radical cosmopolitanism and fair bargaining. Filled with concrete historical detail as well as philosophizing, this book is a superb example of applied ethics. Its recommendations cannot be ignored by those of us who are critical of American foreign policy, but do not know exactly what alternative to advocate. The global-warming discussion is particularly enlightening."--John Roemer, Yale University


"Miller's Globalizing Justice is an important contribution to thought about transnational justice. The book's combination of fresh, compelling theoretical argument and deep engagement in the realities of global political and economic life are a paradigm for philosophical work on this subject, and indeed for applied ethics in general."--Benjamin Rossi, The Review of Politics

Format: Paperback
A groundbreaking book on global justice that makes a significant contribution to the existing literature. Miller displays an extraordinary combination of philosophical vision, powerful argumentation, and impressive mastery of a very broad body of relevant factual material. This is not a book of pure ideal theory but one that grapples with the most serious issues of our globalized world. It contains a very fair, clear and persuasive assessment of rival theories of international justice. Miller takes very seriously the demands of relationships both within and across borders. The book shows a broad ranging moral imagination and wide ranging knowledge of international responsibilities as emerging from global interactions. I learned much from his account of the complexities of the issues of climate change, and his rigorous, nuanced and clear arguments. Miller remains true to the complexities of the issues without pulling his punches politically and morally on the implications for the American empire and globalization. His vision of global moral progress was realistic and inspiring. A first rate book.

This is an eagerly awaited book which is destined to make a big splash not only in the scholarly community interested in global justice but in the real world of domestic and foreign policies. Written with exceptional clarity and an engaging writing style, the book is accessible to the serious scholars and general readers alike. A leading figure in the debate on global justice, Miller exhibits a bold yet nuanced approach to some of the urgent issues of our time, such as poverty, development, human rights, global warming, global inequity, and international obligations, with great care for the theoretical subtleties and the practical details. In his sensitive and innovative quest to find the global reach of the principle of beneficence, Miller redefines patriotism in a global world and cosmopolitanism in a fragmented globe. This is applied ethics at its best. With the publication of this path-breaking book, political philosophy will never be the same.

Format: Paperback
Richard Miller's latest contribution to the pressing issues of individual rights and responsibilities in a relentlessly globalizing economy is both timely and crucial. Miller brings fresh insight to the problems of contemporary political philosophy, doing so in a way that is very accessible, yet trenchant. Reading _Globalizing Justice: The Ethics of Poverty and Power_ shed new light on many of my deepest commitments regarding issues of nationality and global commitments. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Kindle Edition
Richard Miller's book is arguably the most important contribution to the growing literature in political philosophy on the question of citizenship duties and global justice. With an eye toward balancing the demands of citizenship with global human development, Richard Miller's Globalizing Justice moves toward offering a substantive normative view and practical approach to the pressing issue of responsibility to the global poor. Miller argues that the developed world has benefited from exploiting the disadvantaged position of the poor in global arrangements and interactions. From this Miller advocates for satisfying political obligations to the global poor that are currently grossly neglected. Miller's book is the most probing and delightfully readable response to these urgent issues of our time.
