Global Justice is part of a two-volume set (with Global Ethics) that will aid in the study of global justice and global ethical issues with significant global dimensions. Some of those issues directly concern what individuals, countries, and other associations ought to do in response to various global problems, such as poverty, population growth, and climate change. Others concern the concepts that are commonly used to discuss such issues, such as "development" and "human rights." And still others concern the legitimacy of various phenomena that structure the global scene, such as national borders, the institutions of national sovereignty and self-determination, and attitudes such as nationalism and patriotism.

In recent decades, literature on such issues has started to build up in the Western philosophical tradition. Until now, though, no up-to-date sample of this literature has been available to students and other interested parties. These two books, companion volumes sold separately, fill this gap by providing a sample of the best recent work on these themes.

Book Description:

Global Justice is part of a two-volume set (with Global Ethics) that will aid in the study of global justice and global ethical issues with significant global dimensions. Some of those issues directly concern what individuals, countries, and other associations ought to do in response to various global problems, such as poverty, population growth, and climate change.

From the Back Cover:

Pogge and Moellendorf have performed a great service by thoughtfully selecting a set of fundamental philosophical essays, written by distinguished moral and political theorists, and all addressed to the largest moral issues of our time: human rights, national and cosmopolitan identities, destitution, war, and the prospects of a more decent world. If you want to understand global justice--and you should--this is the place to start.
--Joshua Cohen, Editor, Boston Review; Professor of Political Science, Philosophy, and Law, and Director of the Program on Global Justice, Stanford University

Not only have Moellendorf and Pogge managed to gather all the seminal essays on global justice published in the last thirty years; equally importantly, their introduction sets out, clearly and lucidly, the terms--past, present and future, of this debate. This collection of essays on global justice will undoubtedly become an essential teaching and researching tool.
--Cécile Fabre, Professor of Political Theory, University of Edinburgh

If the contributors to these two volumes help us to understand that poverty, which arguably poses the gravest threat to human life and dignity today, is the product of a deeply inequitious global order, they also enable us to think through what our moral entitlements and duties in relation to these unjust global arrangements are. These landmark volumes will be read, re-read, appreciated, and engaged with for times to come.
--Neera Chandhoke, Professor University of Delhi
