Don’t Steal This Book: Buy It

I’ve written a review of Anthony de Jasay’s latest work, Justice and Its Surroundings, which is nothing less than brilliant. (It’s the book that’s brilliant, not the review.) When the review appears in the Cato Journal, I’ll be sure to post it. In the meantime, I recommend that anyone interested in political and moral thought should buy the book . . . and then read it. Jasay is a brilliant stylist as well as an outstanding economist and social choice theorist. Each essay in the book can be read on its own (so you don’t feel obligated to read the whole book, but can skip around), but together they offer a powerful analytical framework for thinking about justice and the many problems that surround it.
