This text is the ideal resource for teachers who want to introduce their students to the basic aspects of the philosophy of justice but do not wish to hinder progress and insight with the typically difficult exploration of complicated primary sources. Barcalow's previous books have proved his value as a teacher, especially to those who feel daunted by the perceived complexity of philosophy and many of its traditional sources. JUSTICE, EQUALITY, AND RIGHTS, via elucidating prose and short, astutely-edited selections from key primary sources, presents all the major positions and arguments in contemporary political philosophy, including the legitimacy of government, the nature of rights, issues in economic justice, and war and peace.
