This two-volume Encyclopedia of Global Justice, published by Springer, along with Springer's book series, Studies in Global Justice, is a major publication venture toward a comprehensive coverage of this timely topic. The Encyclopedia is an international, interdisciplinary, and collaborative project, spanning all the relevant areas of scholarship related to issues of global justice, and edited and advised by leading scholars from around the world.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book attempts to assess the many ethical and practical consequences of this markedly unequal division of the world’s resources. … The encyclopedia deals at length with some of the most profound ethical and political questions of our time … . for readers whose moral or political views are not prescribed for them by an all-powerful state or an all-embracing religion, this substantial and penetrating book will provide valuable guidance on matters of vital importance to the world.” (K. C. Fraser, Reference Reviews, Vol. 26 (7), 2012)
