Justice in the city by Aryeh Cohen ( )
8 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Justice in the City argues, based on the Rabbinic textual tradition, especially the Babylonian Talmud, and utilizing French Jewish philosopher Emmanuel Levinas' framework of interpersonal ethics, that a just city should be a community of obligation. That is, in a community thus conceived, the privilege of citizenship is the assumption of the obligations of the city towards Others who are not always in view--workers, the poor, the homeless. These Others form a constitutive part of the city. The second part of the book is a close analysis of homelessness, labor and restorative justice from within the theory that was developed. --From publisher's description

Annotation Eight essays address the relation of any specific beginningof a text, a book, an argument, a narrativeto the originary moment of Jewish textual tradition. The two fundamental approaches are attending to the quotidian and obvious notion that any textual work claims a beginning, and the connection between rhetorical and cultural moves. No credentials are noted for the contributors. There is no index. Distributed in the US by Stylus. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
