Sandel offers a primer on a number of theories of justice and applies them to questions that are (or have been) the subject of political discourse. Emphasizing the accessibility of the material, Sandel presents summaries of these theories that are clear and easy to understand. His delivery is characterized by an almost-conversational tone. His arguments as to why the various theories do not offer satisfactory answers to issues such as abortion rights or same-sex marriage or arguments for or against a military draft may sound persuasive precisely because he presents them calmly and without drama. Nonetheless, the ideas in this book beg to be discussed. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2010]
