From the Back Cover:

There is little doubt that John Rawls was the preeminent English speaking political philosopher of the twentieth century. His monumental 1971 book, A Theory of Justice, is often credited with revitalizing political philosophy. Recent years have seen a dramatic increase in publications on Rawls, but while the depth and significance of his work on social justice is generally acknowledged, the breadth of his contribution to philosophy is often neglected.

With the publication of A Brief Inquiry into the Meaning of Sin and Faith, Rawls's corpus now stands at eight books, comprising some 3,500 pages of text. A Companion to Rawls provides a comprehensive and up-to-date study of the totality of Rawls's work from informed, reliable, but diverse and sometimes critical perspectives. It is a "must-have" volume for students and scholars with a serious interest in Rawls's work.

About the Author:

Jon Mandle is Professor in the Philosophy Department at the University at Albany (SUNY). He has published two books on the work of John Rawls and one on global justice. His work engages in political philosophy, ethics, the philosophy of social science, and their histories.

David A. Reidy is Professor and Head in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Tennessee. He works in political and legal philosophy with special attention to the work of John Rawls and to issues of global justice and human rights. With Rex Martin he co-edited (and contributed to) a volume on Rawls's "The Law of Peoples" recognized by the American Library Association with a "Choice Award."
