        Scales of Justice: Reimagining Political Space in a Globalizing World (New Directions in Critical Theory)

        Nancy Fraser

        New York Columbia University Press 2008

        ISBN 9780231146807

      1. Fraser reinterprets a theory of justice for the globalized, contemporary world through a discussion of redistribution, recognition, and representation. She puts forward a theory that holds up concepts of democracy, solidarity, and the public sphere as key factors in re-righting the scales of justice. See in particular Chapter 2 Reframing Justice in a Globalizing World, Chapter 7 From Discipline to Flexiblization? Rereading Foucault in the Shadow of Globalization, and Chapter 8 Threats to Humanity in Globalization: Arendtian Reflections on the Twenty-First Century.
