The Idea of JusticeBook - 2009
The most important contribution to the subject since John Rawls' A Theory of Justice . Sen argues that what we urgently need in our troubled world is not a theory of an ideally just state, but a theory that can yield judgments as to comparative justice, judgments that tell us when and why we are moving closer to or farther away from realizing justice in the present globalized world.
