This book introduces the reader to the social and behavioural foundations for a sense of justice' - the form of equilibrium which individuals and legal systems seek to achieve and maintain in a changing and complex world.

The contributors draw upon new discoveries and insights from the biologically-based behavioural sciences that are critical to a more informed understanding of legal phenomena, particularly those dealing with complex social and political relationships.
