$ 15.00


‰ÛÏFor Michael Sandel, justice is not a spectator sport,‰۝ The Nation‰۪s reviewer of Justice remarked. In his acclaimed book‰ÛÓbased on his legendary Harvard course‰ÛÓSandel offers a rare education in thinking through the complicated issues and controversies we face in public life today. It has emerged as a most lucid and engaging guide for those who yearn for a more robust and thoughtful public discourse. ‰ÛÏIn terms we can all understand,‰۝ wrote Jonathan Rauch in The New York Times, Justice ‰ÛÏconfronts us with the concepts that lurk . . . beneath our conflicts.‰۝

Affirmative action, same-sex marriage, physician-assisted suicide, abortion, national service, the moral limits of markets‰ÛÓSandel relates the big questions of political philosophy to the most vexing issues of the day, and shows how a surer grasp of philosophy can help us make sense of politics, morality, and our own convictions as well.

Justice is lively, thought-provoking, and wise‰ÛÓan essential new addition to the small shelf of books that speak convincingly to the hard questions of our civic life.
