A Theory of Justice by John Rawls

A Theory of Justice is a widely-read book of political philosophy and ethics by John Rawls.

Rawls attempts to solve the problem of distributive justice by utilising a variant of the familiar device of the social contract. The resultant theory is known as "Justice as Fairness", from which Rawls derives his two famous principles of justice: the liberty principle and the difference principle. - Wikipedia
