Justice as Fairness

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:The best work of political theory ever written.

Cons:It's not a novel...

This is a must read! It's comparatively not very difficult and easy to skip around to the parts you want to read. John Rawls develops a political theory and distributive system that is quite possibly the best ever conceived.

If you think neither capitalism nor communism are fair systems even in theory, this book presents an alternative. Rawls carefully lays out a political system that is undeniably fair. You will wish that our own government adopted this political system.

Since this book, the course of political philosophy has changed. Any contemporary political theorist is expected to read this book and have an opinion on it.

The core of Theory of Justice is the principle that government policies should aim to maximize the position of the least well off, while still providing incentives for everyone to contribute to the welfare of society.
