Product Description

While many are born into prosperity, hundreds of millions of people lead lives of almost unimaginable poverty. Our world remains hugely unequal, with our place of birth continuing to exert a major influence on our opportunities. In this accessible book, leading political theorist Chris Armstrong engagingly examines the key moral and political questions raised by this stark global divide. Why, as a citizen of a relatively wealthy country, should you care if others have to make do with less? Do we have a moral duty to try to rectify this state of affairs? What does 'global justice' mean anyway - and why does it matter? Could we make our world a more just one even if we tried? Can you as an individual make a difference? This book powerfully demonstrates that global justice is something we should all be concerned about, and sketches a series of reforms that would make our divided world a fairer one. It will be essential introductory reading for students of global justice, activists and concerned citizens.

Review

'In this lucid introduction to global justice, Chris Armstrong shows how globalization concerns all of us. He explains why global justice matters and how to respond to it with both individual and collective initiatives.

' Lea Ypi, London School of Economics 'Chris Armstrong's book is a terrific achievement. It successfully combines philosophical and ethical reasoning with a sure grasp of empirical realities. It discusses some of the most important issues of our time; and it does so in a wonderfully clear and accessible way that vividly conveys just what is at stake.

'Simon Caney, University of Warwick
