Michael Walzer on War and Justice by Brian Orend

Michael Walzer on War and Justice


Michael Walzer on War and Justice by Brian Orend

This work offers a comprehensive look at Michael Walzer - one of the most prominent social critics in North America -, and his entire body of work. The topics dealt with include: war; the distribution of wealth; political power; healthcare; and both the national and international fields of justice.


'...Orend carefully expounds Walzer's philosophy...exposes tensions between Walzer's 'conventionalism'
and his attachment to a minimal but more universal and more consistently nonconsequentialist understanding of morality. Orend deepens our understanding of Walzer and makes a contribution of his own to the discussion of international justice

'. Terry Nardin, Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and author of Law, Morality and the Relations of States.'

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Suzanne Beney

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Jennifer Moville

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.
