For several decades the work of Joel Feinberg has been the most influential in legal, political, and social philosophy in the English-speaking world. This volume honours that body of work by presenting fifteen original essays, many of them by leading legal and political philosophers, that explore the problems that have engaged Feinberg over the years. Amongst the topics covered are issues of autonomy, responsibility, and liability. It will be a collection of interest to anyone working in moral, legal, or political philosophy.

Industry Reviews

"In Harm's Way is an excellent book. ... It should be clear both that Feinbergian themes pervade this collection, and that the issues discussed are at the cutting edge of legal and social theory. Even if you buy only on hardbound book a year, think about making it this one. And even it you normally never buy harbound books, think about buying In Harm's Way. You won't regret it."
