Summary
"Social justice" is a term heard a great deal today, but what does it mean? It does not appear in pre-nineteenth century classic texts on justice. Is it a social agenda inspired by compassion? Is it a particular set of institutional arrangements to achieve justice? What the term means, and - in some quarters - whether it is even a term worth using, is a matter of controversy.--Back cover
