The most significant political philosopher since John Stuart Mill, Rawls's A Theory of Justice sold over 250,000 copies and has been translated into 20 languages. His presentation of social justice, and particularly his contention that how we organize society should rectify undeserved inequality rather than ratify it, has been the source not only of academic argument, but of political debate and legislative reform."--BOOK JACKET."
