In this collection of essays Onora O'Neill explores and argues for an account of justice that is fundamentally cosmopolitan rather than civic, yet takes serious account of institutions and boundaries, and of human diversity and vulnerability. Starting from conceptions that are central to any account of justice - those of reason, action, judgement, coercion, obligations and rights - she discusses whether and how culturally or politically specific concepts and views, which limit the claims and scope of justice, can be avoided. She then examines the demands and scope of just institutions, arguing that there are good reasons for taking the claims of distant strangers seriously, but that doing so points not to a world without boundaries but to one of porous boundaries and dispersed power. Bounds of Justice will be of interest to a wide range of readers in philosophy, politics and international relations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... the essays in this fine volume cover a wide variety of topics ... The topics are no less vital for their variety, and the arguments are indisputably clear and insightful. Scholars in political philosophy, political science, and international relations will find much here that is well worth contemplating.' Philosophical Inquiry
"O'Neill presents a scholarly, coherent, and interesting collection of her philosophical reflections on the practical bearings of a defensible idea of justice." Choice
"Bounds of Justice is an excellent collection of essays. One of the great strengths of O'Neill's book is that it demonstrates that quite abstract theorizing about justice can help us think about how to live and motivate us to live better." Christian Barry, Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs
"...this is a sophisticated, carefully argued, and thought-provoking book that ought to be required reading for scholars and students troubled by the new challenges of globalisation for the theory and practice of justice." Philosophy in Review
"Scholars in political philosophy, political science, and international relations will find much here that is well worth contemplating." Kenneth Einar Himma, Philosophical Inquiry
