This book articulates and defends a Rawlsian version of cosmopolitanism. Critiquing Rawls's own suggestion that states (or 'peoples') be treated as foundational to the global order, as well as alternative Rawlsian defenses of Rawls's approach, Radicalizing Rawls proposes a polycentric global legal regime, featuring a Law of Persons rather than Rawls's Law of Peoples.

Gary Chartier argues provocatively for more extensive global human rights protections than those Rawls defends and maintains that global anarchy could prove to be an attractive version of John Tomasi's Rawlsian 'market democracy.'
