Summary

International in scope and featuring a diverse group of contributors, The Borders of Justiceinvestigates the complexities of transitional justice that emerge from its "social embeddedness." This original and provocative collection of essays, which stem from a collective research program on social justice undertaken by the Calcutta Research Group, confronts the concept and practices of justice. The editors and contributors question the relationships between geography, methodology, and justice--how and why justice is meted out differently in different places.Expanding on Michael Walzer's idea of the "spheres of justice," the contributors argue that justice is burdened with our notions of social realities and expectations, in addition to the influence of money, law, and government. Chapters provide close readings of Pascal, Plato, and Marx, theories on global justice, the relationship between liberalism and multiculturalism, struggles of social injustice, and how and where we draw the borders of justice.
