Margot E. Salomen, HRLR 8 This is a book that makes a valuable contribution to the consideration of a complex issue of great current significance...I highly recommend this edited collection to the diverse readership that it will no doubt draw, and to anyone concerned with the conditions under which global justice might be acheived.
