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)
