Among its many achievements were an important new theory of distributive justice, a model of utopia, and an integration of ethics, legal philosophy and economic theory to form a profound position in political philosophy. The essays deal with the major aspects of Nozick\'s defence of the minimal state and laissez-faire economy, and include contributions from Bernard Williams, Robert Paul Wolff, Judith Jarvis Thompson, Thomas Nagel, Thomas Scanlon and David Lyons, as well as from Robert Nozick himself.
