This book sets forth a novel theory of distributive justice premised on the fundamental moral equality of persons.
A provocative, well-argued, elegantly written book that will root out any complacency that a reader might have had about these eternal issues on starting it.
Howard Davies, Times Higher Education Supplement
[Rakowski's] account of an egalitarian conception of distributive justice in this outstanding book ranks alongside the pioneering work recently done in this area by writers such as John Rawls and Ronald Dworkin ... his sophisticated and humane account of justice is among the most powerful and persuasive I have read ... This is a book that deserves to be-and no doubt will be-taken very seriously indeed.
Roger Crisp, Journal of Medical Ethics
