What is justice? Great political philosophers from Plato to Rawls have traditionally argued that there is a single, principled answer to this question. Challenging this conventional wisdom, David Miller theorized that justice can take many different forms. In Forms of Justice, a distinguished group of political philosophers takes Miller's theory as a starting point and debates whether justice takes one form or many. Drawing real world implications from theories of justice and examining in depth social justice, national justice, and global justice, this book falls on the cutting edge of the latest developments in political theory. Sure to generate debate among political theorists and social scientists, Forms of Justice is indispensable reading for anyone attentive to the intersection between philosophy and politics.

About the Author:

Daniel A. Bell is associate professor in the Department of Public and Social Administration at the City University of Hong Kong. Avner de-Shalit teaches in the Department of Political Science at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and is an associate fellow at the Oxford Centre for Environment, Ethics, and Society, Mansfield College, Oxford.

Review:

Much more than a fitting tribute to Miller's political philosophy by a very impressive lineup, this collection is a fine critical exploration of social justice in all its forms. (John S. Dryzek, Australian National University, Distinguished Professor of Political Science)

Over the last three decades David Miller has established a reputation as one of the most important and controversial contributors to debates about the nature and limits of social justice and the boundaries of citizenship and national identity. Daniel A. Bell and Avner de-Shalit have brought together an international cast of political philosophers to criticise, explore and develop aspects of Miller's work. The book covers issues such as the nature and limits of desert, the justice of markets, the claims of nationality, the rights and obligations of citizenship and the extent of global justice, and concludes with a reply by Miller to his critics. The breadth and quality of contributions makes this book essential reading for all students of contemporary political philosophy. This is political philosophy at its best and fitting recognition of the continuing significance of Miller's work. (London School of Economics and Political Science, Paul Kelly, London School of Economics)

Rich, rewarding and refreshingly non-doctrinaire. . . . Paying tribute to David Miller's contextualized approach to issues of social and national justice, the contributors to this volume bring out the necessity of finding a balance between principles andpluralism in any responsible discourse on justice which would be of use in a perplexing and ever-changing world. This volume also shows how in their quest for justice, political philosophers need to go beyond a veil of ignorance by showing respect topeople's belief system and historical values in all their sometimes confusing variety??? (Shlomo Avineri, Hebrew University of Jerusalem)

...Forms of Justice should prove a first class resource for students of political philsosphy, especially, perhaps, for those who already know their way about. Overall, Forms of Justice is a thoughtful contribution to the philosophical analysis of justice. (Philosophical Books)

This collection of interesting and engaging papers serves not only as an introduction to his ideas and arguments, but also to contemporary political philosophy in general. The editors are to be applauded not only for assembling a good variety of contributors but also for organizing the papers into three neat parts. (The Philosophical Quarterly)

An impressive collection of contributions that address a range of Miller's recent ideas. The editors have done a fabulous job increating a discursive feel to the book, where the authors refer to one another and Miller responds eloquently. A great overview of contemporary issues in justice theory; perfect for graduate courses. (David Schlosberg, Northern Arizona University)
