  • Justice and the American Metropolisby Clarissa Rile Hayward; Todd Swanstrom; Stephen Macedo

    University of Minnesota Press 2011; US$ 75.00

    Today’s American cities and suburbs are the sites of “thick injustice”—unjust power relations that are deeply and densely concentrated as well as opaque and seemingly intractable.

  • Meaning in Life and Why It Mattersby Susan Wolf; Stephen Macedo; John Koethe; Robert M. Adams; Nomy Arpaly; Jonathan Haidt

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 19.95
