A provocative, well-argued, elegantly written book that will root out any complacency that a reader might have had about these eternal issues on starting it. ( Howard Davies, Times Higher Education Supplement)
[Rakowski's] account of an egalitarian conception of distributive justice in this outstanding book ranks alongside the pioneering work recently done in this area by writers such as John Rawls and Ronald Dworkin ... his sophisticated and humane account of justice is among the most powerful and persuasive I have read ... This is a book that deserves to beDSand no doubt will beDStaken very seriously indeed. ( Roger Crisp, Journal of Medical Ethics)
The core of this treatise is a novel theory of distributive justice premised on the fundamental moral equality of persons. In the light of this theory, Eric Rakowski considers three types of problems which urgently require solutions - the distribution of resources, property rights and the saving of life - and provides challenging and unconventional answers. Further, he criticizes the economic analysis of law as a normative theory, and develops an alternative account of tort and property law. Among the topics discussed are the principles by which earnings, wealth and gifts should be taxed; whether the compulsory removal of organs for transplantation can be justified; how doctors and public officials should make life-or-death decisions when all those endangered cannot be helped in equal measure; and the morality of killing human beings and non-human animals.
