Rawls, John
A Theory of Justice: Original Edition
BookID 79701181
ISBN 0674880145
(see LibraryThing.com card)
Description (from Amazon)Since it appeared in 1971, John Rawls's A Theory of Justice has become a classic. The author has now revised the original edition to clear up a number of difficulties he and others have found in the original book.
My review: 5/5"I discovered this book through a real ""apology of Rawls"" that was contained within a book from a former speechwriter for President Reagan.

You may agree or disagree with it, but, in organizational design, I used its concepts often not as a guideline for design (different organizations have different concepts of ""fairness"" and distribution of power and resources), but as a framework to ask questions.

As often what matters is not that you share the answers, but that you can position yourself and your choices vs. the questions coming from sources that do not necessarily concur with your choices.

Having said that, I think that, politically, there are still some parts of the book that are relevant today, moreover when you consider that in our modern society where everybody is constantly switching status and roles, often we demand fairness in some venues (or ""ecosystems"", to use today's trendy lingo), while fail to give it in others"
