Summary

Michael Walzer is one of the world’s leading philosophers and political theorists. In addition to his best-known books such as Spheres of Justice, and Just and Unjust Wars, he has contributed to contemporary political debates beyond academia in the New York Times, the New Yorker and Dissent.

Reading Walzer is the first book to assess the full range of Walzer’s work. An outstanding team of international contributors consider the following topics in relation to Walzer’s work:

  • the moral standing of nation states
  • individual responsibility and laws governing the conduct of war
  • debates over intervention and non-intervention
  • human and minority rights
  • moral and cultural pluralism
  • equality
  • justice
  • Walzer’s radicalism and role as a critic.

All chapters have been specially commissioned for this collection, and Walzer’s responses to his critics makes Reading Walzer essential reading for students of political philosophy and political theory.
