Description

Since its publication in 1965 Political Argument has come to be recognized as occupying a key position in the revival of Anglo-American political philosophy

Brilliant and incisive, it will engender discussion and debate from many quarters. Since its publication in 1965 Political Argument has come to be recognized as occupying a key position in the revival of Anglo-American political philosophy. A number of the ideas introduced by Barry have become part of the standard vocabulary, such as the distinction between ideal-regarding and want-regarding principles and the division of principles into aggregative and distributive.

A Treatise on Social Justice is addressed to the question that Plato asked in the Republic 2500 years ago: What is Justice?" This are the first words of the book, in them, Prof. Barry summarizes extremely well the contents of the book and then proceeds to make good on his promise. The book is a tough read if you have no knowledge of basic Political Philo, of Hume's and Rawl's thories, etc. But, if you work at it, at the end you will be able to do quite well in Political Philo 303!

Much has changed since Shirk's book was published

Series: California Series on Social Choice and Political Economy (Book 24). Paperback: 412 pages. Much has changed since Shirk's book was published. The deep embeddedness of economic operation into the political institutions created opportunities for rent-seeking, and coupled with CCP's ardent refusal of profound political reforms they have limited the benefits of free market economy among certain elite groups, excacerbated resistance towards further marketization and liberalization that would eliminate distortion of economy, and restrained the regime's capability to deal with social problems.

Susan Shirk shows that Chinese communist political institutions are more flexible and less centralized than their Soviet counterparts were

Susan Shirk shows that Chinese communist political institutions are more flexible and less centralized than their Soviet counterparts were. Shirk pioneers a rational choice institutional approach to analyze policy-making in a non-democratic authoritarian country and to explain the history of Chinese market reforms from 1979 to the present.

Since its publication in 1965 Political Argument has come to be recognized as occupying a key position in the revival of Anglo-American political philosophy. A number of the ideas introduced by Barry have become part of the standard vocabulary, such as the distinction between ideal-regarding and want-regarding principles and the division of principles into aggregative and distributive.Political Argument provided the first precise analysis, still frequently cited, of the conception that political values have trade-off relations; the analysis of the notion of the public interest has also enjoyed wide influence. For this long-awaited reprint, the author has prepared a substantial, new introductory essay in which he recounts the process of writing the book and sets it in the intellectual milieu of its time. He then offers extensive comments on the subsequent fate of some of the leading ideas and assesses the book in light of criticisms and later developments. Finally, Barry evaluates current approaches to political philosophy as they look today.This new edition of Political Argument will interest political theorists, philosophers, economists, and a range of other scholars. Brilliant and incisive, it will engender discussion and debate from many quarters.
