Review quote

"In sum, readers of this volume will encoutner a fair number of interesting ideas, belonging to different parts of the hisotrical and political spectrum, accompanied by numerous references to more substanial works.--Eugene Schlossberger, Purdue University."
"With this work Boucher and Kelly have provided a pedagogically useful guide to liberalism's continuing engagement with questions of social justice. "Social Justice successfully shows the vigor of alternative traditions while at the same time avoids underplaying the differences within the liberal tradition itself, neither reducing the tradition to simply the banal orthodoxy of rational choice theory nor to Rawlsian contractarian justifications of distributive justice.."
-Matthew R. Hachee, Michigan State University
