Michael Boylan's book A Just Society challenges old assumptions and advances a new analytical framework for understanding social justice. This important collection provides not only a full and vigorous engagement with Boylan's novel moral-political theory, but also a fresh set of views on the nature, meaning and prospects of a just society today.
