The Eleven Chapters of A Climate of Justice


I’ve been surprised that many people have chosen to read chapters of my book, A Climate of Justice, rather than download the whole book.  The downloads are free, thanks to Lyrasis, a group of librarians who funded the book’s open access because they believed it supported the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.  The eleven chapters were written independent of each other, so it’s possible to treat them as short books, although they also contribute to the book’s overall purpose.  You can access any of the Chapters by clicking on their number.
