I can't find it on Can you post a link please. Also, is it or will it be available as some sort of ebook?

It's great to hear from you. I had understood the book was on Amazon and I've a number of other forthcoming books - all appearing after these - uploaded in the last week or two (e.g., Hegel's Philosophy of Right, Justice and the Capabilities Approach, Rawls and Law, Rawls' Political Liberalism). I would expect this up on Amazon any day - and it will appear next month. While I'm unsure if it will be available as an eBook, the papers are available electronically via the Journal of Moral Philosophy: this book is a collection of recent work in the JMP.
