About this Book

Grafting the Marxian idea that private property is coercive onto the liberal imperative of individual liberty, this new thesis from one of America's foremost intellectuals conceives a revised definition of justice that recognizes the harm inflicted by capitalism's hidden coercive structures.

  • Maps a new frontier in moral philosophy and political theory
  • Distills a new concept of justice that recognizes the iniquities of capitalism
  • Synthesis of elements of Marxism and Liberalism will interest readers in both camps
  • Direct and jargon-free style opens these complex ideas to a wide readership
