The Cosmopolitan Tradition: A Noble but Flawed Ideal

Nussbaum wants to extend the “cosmopolitan tradition” to address key problems, among them international human rights, foreign aid, and asylum and immigration issues. As usual, she demonstrates the value of reading old texts in order to address contemporary concerns in this timely and well-argued contribution.

Anger and Forgiveness: Resentment, Generosity, Justice

Highly recommended. Nussbaum offers careful, nuanced distinctions with clear implications on the personal and political levels.

The New Religious Intolerance

This powerful and profound book is useful to anyone seriously concerned with religious pluralism and civil liberty.

Creating Capabilities

By demonstrating the philosophical underpinnings of this approach and how the theory plays out in the real world, Nussbaum makes a compelling case. Not only is this a more realistic measure of wealth, but it is also a far more compassionate one. For readers who enjoy economics laced with humanity.

The Offensive Internet

Indispensable! Scholars of Internet law and general readers alike will find this book informative, illuminating, and disturbing. [See also Evgeny Morozov's The Net Delusion, reviewed on page opposite.—Ed.]
