Description
Summary:"Resurrecting the neglected question of what we mean by legal justice, this book seeks to re-imagine rather than simply critique our contemporary notions of the rule of law, rights and legal equality. This work of reconstruction offers a progressive and egalitarian approach to concepts that have become overly associated with the idea of limited government and social conservatism. Focusing on the necessary conditions of co-operative community life, this book presents a vision of law that facilitates rather than frustrates politics, an analysis of rights that boosts our capacities for caring, and an idea of equality that captures a cosmopolitan vision based on the recognition of shared humanity."--BOOK JACKET.
