The substantially revised third edition of this widely-used text introduces nine major theoretical approaches and their key protagonists, including a new chapter on global justice, and assesses their ability to generate clear, consistent and illuminating accounts of justice as a distinctive social, political and legal value.

Review comments on first edition: '[A] fine critical introduction. [A]lways succinct and lucid, always fair minded. This is certain to become the standard text on contemporary theories of justice.' - David Miller, Journal of Social Policy '[E]very chapter is rich in insight and thought provoking in its analysis. The entire book reveals the learning of its author. [A]s an introductory text Justice succeeds admirably. One will not find anywhere else such easily accessible and clearly written introductions to this range of different views'. - Stephen C. Hicks, Bimonthly Review of Law Books
