    DescriptionFreedom, in Philip Pettit's provocative analysis, "requires more than just being let alone". In Just Freedom, a succinct articulation of the republican philosophy for which he is renowned, Pettit builds a theory of universal freedom as non-domination. Seen through this lens, even societies that consider themselves free may find their political arrangements lacking. He questions whether those arrangements protect people's liberties equally. Whether they are subject to the equally shared control of those they protect. And whether they allow the different peoples of the world to live in equal freedom. An invitation to join a programme that would better articulate and realise justice in our social, democratic and international lives, Just Freedom offers readers an essential starting point for the world's thorniest problems.

    Review quote
    Just Freedom is a comprehensive vision of politics by one of the leading thinkers of our time. With great clarity and originality, Philip Pettit develops the idea of republican freedom as non-domination and pays close attention to what it means for institutions. To combine theory and practice in that way is a Herculean achievement. --Rainer Forst, professor of philosophy and political theory, Goethe University, and winner of the 2012 Leibniz Prize"
