Abstract Democracy and justice are often mutually antagonistic ideas, yet in this innovative book Ian Shapiro explains how and why they should be pursued together. Justice must be pursued by democratic means ...f it is to garner legitimacy in the modern world, and democracy must be justice-promoting if it is to sustain allegiance over time. Shapiro spells out the implications of this argument for pressing debates about authority over children, marriage, basic income guarantees, population control, governing the workplace, health insurance, and social policy toward the elderly.
