About this book

Justice, the State and International Relations offers a review of historical traditions of international ethical and political theory in the light of modern developments in political philosophy. McCarthy provides a defence of natural law tradition, and, in response to the criticism of natural law that, along with Kantianism, it is too abstract to produce a substantive account of justice and rights, constructs an argument for basic, agency-grounded rights. Through his study, the author attacks `realism' and the modern `cosmopolitan' theories that until now have been too little debated.

About the authors

Leo McCarthy was Lecturer in Politics at the University of Edinburgh, and is currently working on a companion volume provisionally entitled Human Rights and International Distributive Justice.
