Legal and political philosophers agree that justice occupies a very important place in the pantheon of legal, moral and political values. However, they deeply disagree about the contours of the very concept of justice and also about the substantive requirements of a just society. This collection of essays by philosophers, legal theorists and political scientists gives a clear indication of the different approaches and viewpoints, especially put forward since publication of Justice, in the first series of The International Library of Essays in Law and Legal Theory. It is divided into four parts which deal with: the scope of the very concept of "justice", discussions of redistributive, desert-based conceptions of justice, the developments ( and critiques) of Rawlsian theory of justice, feminist critiques of liberal theory of justice.
