From Library Journal:

As the Wittgensteinian title suggests, Wolgast concerns herself with a conceptual analysis of the term justice. She begins by presenting and exploring a model she calls "social atomism," which addresses injustice by emphasizing individual rights. She then discusses a variety of ethico-political issues, such as majority rule, representation, the control of pornography, justice as a corrective to perceived injustice rather than as a definable ideal, the justification of punishment, and how the idea of justice presupposes a particular kind of complexity in life. Wolgast explains difficult ideas simply and thereby achieves her goal of getting a clearer view of how our moral reasoning works and how it illuminates our political judgments. Highly recommended.
