Pogge and Moellendorf have performed a great service by thoughtfully selecting a set of fundamental philosophical essays, written by distinguished moral and political theorists, and all addressed to the largest moral issues of our time: human rights, national and cosmopolitan identities, destitution, war, and the prospects of a more decent world. If you want to understand global justice—and you should—this is the place to start.
—Joshua Cohen, Editor, Boston Review; Professor of Political Science, Philosophy, and Law, and Director of the Program on Global Justice, Stanford University

Not only have Moellendorf and Pogge managed to gather all the seminal essays on global justice published in the last thirty years; equally importantly, their introduction sets out, clearly and lucidly, the terms—past, present and future, of this debate. This collection of essays on global justice will undoubtedly become an essential teaching and researching tool.
—Cécile Fabre, Professor of Political Theory, University of Edinburgh

If the contributors to these two volumes help us to understand that poverty, which arguably poses the gravest threat to human life and dignity today, is the product of a deeply inequitious global order, they also enable us to think through what our moral entitlements and duties in relation to these unjust global arrangements are. These landmark volumes will be read, re-read, appreciated, and engaged with for times to come.
—Neera Chandhoke, Professor University of Delhi

"Covering countless moral and current issues that are the questions of our time such as human rights, national identity, war, and the betterment of mankind as a whole....deftly assembled and has the highest recommendation..."
