Global distributive justice is now part of mainstream political debate. It incorporates issues that are now a familiar feature of the political landscape, such as global poverty, trade justice, aid to the developing world and debt cancellation. This is the first textbook to focus exclusively on issues of distributive justice on the global scale. It gives clear and up-to-date accounts of the major theories of global justice and spells out their significance for a series of important political issues, including climate change, international trade, human rights and migration. These issues are brought to life through the use of case studies, which emphasise the connection of theories of justice to contemporary politics, and 'Further Issues' sections, which discuss emerging debates or controversies that are likely to command increasing attention in the coming years.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'In this fine book, Armstrong has filled a significant gap in the literature by providing a very clear, learned, and comprehensive discussion of different approaches to global distributive justice and some of their apparent implications for pressing policy issues such as trade, immigration, and climate change.' Christian Barry, Australian National University
'This is a lively, clearly written and very helpful textbook that is accessible and yet philosophically engaging. It is not only of interest to undergraduates, new to the subject, but [it] also develops fresh arguments on various aspects of the debate, which will be of interest to people immersed in the literature.' Margaret Moore, Queen's University, Kingston, Canada
'This book does an excellent job of introducing students to some of the most interesting and significant philosophical arguments about global distributive justice. It also uses cases studies very well to demonstrate what is at stake in the abstract normative debates. It does students a tremendous service.' Darrel Moellendorf, Professor of Philosophy and Director of Institute for Ethics and Public Affairs, San Diego State University
