In this collection of essays, Onora O'Neill argues for an account of justice that is fundamentally cosmopolitan rather than civic, yet takes serious account of institutions and boundaries, and of human diversity and vulnerability. She explores the question of whether the claims and scope of justice are limited by culturally or politically specific concepts and views, and examines the demands and scope of just institutions and the possibility of a world with porous boundaries and dispersed power. Bounds of Justice will appeal to readers in philosophy, politics and international relations.Read more

"O'Neill presents a scholarly, coherent, and interesting collection of her philosophical reflections on the practical bearings of a defensible idea of justice." ChoiceSee more reviews
"Bounds of Justice is an excellent collection of essays. One of the great strengths of O'Neill's book is that it demonstrates that quite abstract theorizing about justice can help us think about how to live and motivate us to live better." Christian Barry, Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs
"...this is a sophisticated, carefully argued, and thought-provoking book that ought to be required reading for scholars and students troubled by the new challenges of globalisation for the theory and practice of justice." Philosophy in Review
"Scholars in political philosophy, political science, and international relations will find much here that is well worth contemplating." Kenneth Einar Himma, Philosophical Inquiry
