Ronald Dworkin's work on equality has shaped debates in the field
of distributive justice for nearly three decades. His idea of an
egalitarian plateau in contemporary political thought along with
his more concrete conception of equality of resources have
generated a great deal of interest but have also attracted much
criticism. In this book Alexander Brown offers a critical defence
of Dworkin's theory of equality. He also sets out to consider what
this theory might look like if it were applied to questions of
global justice. The philosophical discourse on global justice has
benefited greatly from contributions by, amongst others, John
Rawls, Charles Beitz and Thomas Pogge. Hitherto Dworkin has stood
on the sidelines. This book tries to take seriously the possibility
of extending equality of resources globally despite Dworkin
himself, and to explain why his interpretive methodology might have
something to add here.
