Michael Sandel's "Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do?" invites readers of all ages and political persuasions on a journey of moral reflection, and shows how reasoned debate can illuminate our lives. Is it always wrong to lie? Should there be limits to personal freedom? Can killing sometimes be justified? Is the free market fair? What is the right thing to do?

Michael Sandel connects the philosophies of Ancient Greece, the Enlightenment, and the 19th century with some of the difficult questions of today's American political life.
