"Reciprocity is an exciting book-it forces its readers to rethink some important issues in recent moral philosophy."-Ruth Anna Putnam, Ethics "By reciprocity Becker understands a complex disposition to make suitable return for the benefit we receive from others, to resist the harm others inflict on us rather than retaliate for it, and to make restitution for the harm we ourselves cause. . . . This is a clearly written book which makes fresh contributions to a number of topics."-A. D. M. Walker, Philosophical Books
