  3. Readings in Social and Political Philosophy.Robert M. Stewart (ed.) - 1996 - Oxford University Press.
    This updated edition of a well-established anthology of social and political philosophy combines extensive selections from classical works with significant recent contributions to the field, many of which are not easily available.

  4. Elements of Social and Political Philosophy.Jan T. J. Srzednicki - 1976 - Martinus Nijhoff.
  5. Sociological Justice.Donald Black - 1993 - Oxford University Press USA.
    That discrimination exists in courts of law is beyond dispute. In American murder cases, for instance, studies show that blacks who kill a white are much more likely to receive the death penalty than if they kill a black. Indeed, in Georgia, they are 30 times more likely to be condemned, and in Texas a staggering 90 times more likely. Conversely, in Texas, of 143 whites convicted of killing a black, only one was sentenced to die. But how extensive is (...)
  6. Institutional Diversity and Political Economy: The Ostroms and Beyond.Paul Dragos Aligica - 2013 - Oup Usa.

  7. Minority Rights in Asia: A Comparative Legal Analysis.Joshua Castellino & Elvira Domínguez Redondo - 2006 - Oxford University Press.
    Minority rights law has been an important axis for the evolution of international law itself. While much has been written about minority rights regimes in Europe, there is very little information available with regards to Asian experiences. Countries in Asia, with their diverse populations, are struggling with constructing legal systems that will deliver on the promise of equal rights to all its citizens. This book evaluates these attempts in four Asian states: India, China, Malaysia and Singapore by examining the theory (...)

  8. Communities and Markets in Economic Development.Masahiko Aoki & Yujiro Hayami (eds.) - 2000 - Oxford University Press UK.
    This volume presents historical, contemporary, and theoretical perspectives on the role of local communities and social norms in the economic development process.

  9. Religious Convictions and Political Choice.Kent Greenawalt - 1991 - Oxford University Press USA.
    How far may Americans properly rely on their religious beliefs when they make and defend political decisions? For example, are ordinary citizens or legislators doing something wrong when they consciously allow their decisions respecting abortion laws to be determined by their religious views? Despite its intense contemporary relevance, the full dimensions of this issue have until now not been thoroughly examined. Religious Convictions and Political Choice represents the first attempt to fill this gap. Beginning with an account of the basic (...)

    In three parts, this volume in the AP-LS series explores the phenomena of captivity and risk management, guided and informed by the theory, method, and policy of psychological jurisprudence. The authors present a controversial thesis that demonstrates how the forces of captivity and risk management are sustained by several interdependent "conditions of control." These conditions impose barriers to justice and set limits on citizenship for one and all. Situated at the nexus of political/social theory, mental health law and jurisprudential ethics, (...)
  12. Inclusion in the City: Selection, Schooling and Community.Patricia Potts (ed.) - 2003 - Routledge.
    _Inclusion in the City_ explores inclusion and exclusion in the context of policy and practice in one English city - Birmingham. Here, a commitment to redressing the inequalities experienced by many learners has been inhibited by difficulty in securing agreement to a definite policy for inclusion and, consequently, in sustaining initiatives for strengthening participation in community comprehensive education. Grounded in an understanding of inclusion as a political and moral project, the book presents a range of perspectives from policymakers and practitioners. (...)

In this book one of the most influential political theorists of our time discusses the politics of toleration.

  23. Judaism, Human Rights, and Human Values.Lenn E. Goodman - 1998 - Oup Usa.
    Lenn Goodman argues forcefully that the Jewish tradition has a significant contribution to make to the general discourse on ethical issues. His goal in this book is to seek within the Jewish tradition, and in its interaction with other currents of Western thought, the foundations on which to build - without recourse to the privilege of "revelation" - public ethical theory.

  34. Ethics in International Relations: A Constitutive Theory.Mervyn Frost - 1996 - Cambridge University Press.
    Most questions commonly asked about international politics are ethical ones. Should the international community intervene in Bosnia? What do we owe the starving in Somalia? What should be done about the genocide in Rwanda? Yet, Mervyn Frost argues, ethics is accorded a marginal position within the academic study of international relations. In this book he examines the reasons given for this, and finds that they do not stand up to scrutiny. He goes on to evaluate those ethical theories which do (...)

  40. Love and Power the Role of Religion and Morality in American Politics.Michael J. PERRY - 1991 - Oxford University Press.
    In this sequel to his Morality, Politics, and Law, Michael Perry addresses the proper relation of moral convictions to the politics of a morally pluralistic society. While his analysis focuses on religious morality, Perry's argument applies to morality generally. Contending that no justification of a contested political choice can be neutral among competing conceptions of human good, the author develops an ideal of "ecumenical politics" in which moral convictions about human good can be brought to bear in a productive way (...)

Several papers quantify the link between trade, (...)

  42. Making Globalization Good: The Moral Challenges of Global Capitalism.John H. Dunning (ed.) - 2004 - Oxford University Press.
    How can we develop a global economic architecture which is efficient, morally acceptable, geographically inclusive, and sustainable over time? If global capitalism -- arguably the most efficient wealth-creating system known to man -- is to be both economically viable and socially acceptable, each of its four constituent institutions must be both technically competent and buttressed by a strong moral ethos. Leading thinkers in international business and ethics identify the pressing moral issues which global capitalism must answer.

  45. Impartiality in Moral and Political Philosophy.Susan Mendus - 2002 - Oxford University Press.
    The debate between impartialists and their critics has dominated both moral and political philosophy for over a decade. Characteristically, impartialists argue that any sensible form of impartialism can accommodate the partial concerns we have for others. By contrast, partialists deny that this is so. They see the division as one which runs exceedingly deep and argue that, at the limit, impartialist thinking requires that we marginalise those concerns and commitments that make our lives meaningful. This book attempts to show both (...)
  46. Foundations of Liberalism.Margaret Moore - 1993 - Oxford University Press UK.
    This book is an original critique of contemporary liberal theories of justice, focusing on the problem of how to relate the personal point of view of the individual to the impartial perspective of justice. Margaret Moore's examination of prominent contemporary arguments for liberal justice reveals that individualist theories are subject to two serious difficulties: the motivation problem and the integrity problem. Individualists cannot explain why the individual should be motivated to act in accordance with the dictates of liberal justice, andDSrelated (...)
