Two Views of Social Justice
A Catholic/Georgist Dialogue
Edited by Kenneth R. Lord

Sixteen scholars have come together in this issue to examine eight social-justice themes from the perspectives of Catholic social thought and the philosophy of Henry George. The themes they address are natural law, human nature, the nature of work, the nineteenth-century papal encyclical Rerum Novarum, causes of war, immigration, development, and neighborhood revitalization. While they sometimes wrangle with each other, their common aspiration is the same as their nineteenth-century predecessors: to find solutions to the human suffering caused by injustice.

The Traumatised Society
How to Outlaw Cheating and Save our Civilisation
By Fred Harrison

Fred Harrison was one of the first to forecast the events that ruptured the global economy in 2008 by applying an analysis that exposes the fault lines in the structure of the market economy. His new book extends that same analysis to the future of the West, evaluating fears from distinguished commentators who claim that European civilisation is in danger of being eclipsed. Harrison concludes that the West is at a dangerous tipping point and provides empirical and theoretical evidence to warrant such an alarming conclusion. But he also explains why it is not too late to prevent the looming social catastrophe.
