An in-depth philosophical study into the implications of wealth inequality in modern societies
Wealth, and specifically its distribution, has been a topic of great debate in recent years. Calls for justice against corporations implicated in the 2008 financial crash; populist rallying against “the one percent”; distrust of the influence of wealthy donors on elections and policy—all of these issues have their roots in a larger discussion of how wealth operates in American economic and political life.

In Wealth a distinguished interdisciplinary group of scholars in political science, law and philosophy address the complex set of questions that relate to economic wealth and its implications for social and political life in modern societies. The volume thus brings together a range of perspectives on wealth, inequality, capitalism, oligarchy, and democracy. The essays also cover a number of more specific topics including limitarianism, U.S. Constitutional history, the wealth defense industry, slavery, and tax policy. Economic wealth and its distribution is a pressing issue and this latest installment in the NOMOS series offers new and thought-provoking insights. JACK KNIGHT is Frederic Cleaveland Professor of Law and Political Science at Duke University.

Policy and economic experts explain the economic trends and varied political goals at work in Southeast Asia
With China’s emergence as a powerful entity in Southeast Asia, the region has become an unlikely site of conflict between two of the world’s EDiTED bY DaviD b. H. Denoon great powers. The United States, historically regarded as the protector of Pacific Southeast Asia, is now called upon to respond to what many would consider bullying on the part of the Chinese. contributors

While certainly inclined to help the country’s former allies, the United States has grown undeniably closer to China in the recent decades of global interconnected economic growth. China, the United States, and the Future of Southeast Asia delves into the complicated dynamics of this situation. Covering topics such as the controversial response to human rights violations, the effects of global economic interconnectedness, and contested sovereignty over resource-rich islands, this volume provides a modern and nuanced perspective on the state of the region. For anyone interested in understanding the evolving global balance of power, China, the United States, and the Future of Southeast Asia illuminates how countries as different as Thailand and Indonesia see the growing competition between Beijing and Washington.
