Legal and political philosophers agree that justice occupies an important place in the pantheon of legal, moral and political values. However, they disagree about the contours of the concept of justice and also about the substansive requirements of a just society. This collection of essays by philosophers, legal theorists and political scientists provide a clear indication of the different approaches and viewpoints in each field. The text is divided into four parts that deal with: the scope of the very concept of ""justice""; discussions of redistributive, desert-based concpetions of justice; the developments, and critiques, of Rawlasian theory of justice; and feminist critiques of liberal theory of justice.
