New book coming soon!


Delighted my REVISED EDITION of THE GLOBAL JUSTICE READER is coming out in a few weeks!

The original edition was published in 2008. The newly revised edition has updated contents, new sections and new readings in this popular anthology.

I have also written a companion GLOBAL JUSTICE: AN INTRODUCTION that will be published shortly. The two books work together - and both are published by Wiley-Blackwell.

The book's blurb:

A unique compendium of foundational and contemporary writings in global justice, newly revised and expanded

The Global Justice Reader is the first resource of its kind to focus exclusively on this important topic in moral and political philosophy, providing an expertly curated selection of both classic and contemporary work in one comprehensive volume. Purpose-built for course work, this collection brings together the best in the field to help students appreciate the philosophical dimensions of critical global issues and chart the development of diverse concepts of justice and morality.

Newly revised and expanded, the Reader presents key writings of the most influential writers on global justice, including Thomas Hobbes, Immanuel Kant, John Stuart Mill, Martha C. Nussbaum, and Peter Singer. Thirty-nine chapters across eleven thematically organized sections explore sovereignty, rights to self-determination, human rights, nationalism and patriotism, cosmopolitanism, global poverty, women and global justice, climate change, and more.

  • Features seminal works from the moral and political philosophers of the past as well as important writings from leading contemporary thinkers
  • Explores critical topics in current discourses surrounding immigration and citizenship, global poverty, just war, terrorism, and international environmental justice
  • Highlights the need for shared philosophical resources to help address global problems
  • Includes a brief introduction in each section setting out the issues of concern to global justice theorists
  • Contains complete references in each chapter and a fully up-to-date, extended bibliography to supplement further readings

The revised edition of The Global Justice Reader remains an ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate courses in global justice and human rights, cosmopolitanism and nationalism, environmental justice, and social justice and citizenship, and an excellent supplement for general courses in political philosophy, political science, social science, and law.
