Foundations of liberalism by Margaret Moore( Book )

27 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A critique of contemporary liberal theories of justice, focusing on the problem of how to relate the personal point of view of the individual to the impartial perspective of justice. The author's examination of prominent contemporary arguments for liberal justice reveals that individualist theories are subject to two serious difficulties
The ethics of nationalism by Margaret Moore( Book )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The discussion of nation-building projects involves a theory of the appropriate policies and principles that the state should follow in giving preferences to a particular national group. The discussion of national self determination projects analyses the kind of procedural right to secession that should be institutionalized in domestic constitutions on international law, and the possibilities for commodating rival claims to national recognition in the changing international order."--Jacket
National self-determination and secession by Margaret Moore( Book )

24 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the years following 1991, when Allen Buchanan published Secession, a number of competing theories of the ethics of secession have been put forward. This study, by a host of leading figures in the field, brings together for the first time a series of original essays on these theories. Offering fresh insight into debates about contested territory, the problem of minorities, and the place of secession in resolving national conflicts, this volume provides a much-needed philosophical discussion of the normative implications of nationalism
A political theory of territory by Margaret Moore( Book )

16 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our world is currently divided into territorial states that resist all attempts to change their borders. But what entitles a state, or the people it represents, to assume monopoly control over a particular piece of the Earth's surface? Why are they allowed to prevent others from entering? What if two or more states, or two or more groups of people, claim the same piece of land? Political philosophy, which has had a great deal to say about the relationship between state and citizen, has largely ignored these questions about territory. This book provides answers. It justifies the idea of territory itself in terms of the moral value of political self-determination; it also justifies, within limits, those elements that we normally associate with territorial rights: rights of jurisdiction, rights over resources, right to control borders and so on. The book offers normative guidance over a number of important issues facing us today, all of which involve territory and territorial rights, but which are currently dealt with by ad hoc reasoning: disputes over resources; disputes over boundaries, oceans, unoccupied islands, and the frozen Arctic; disputes rooted in historical injustices with regard to land; secessionist conflicts; and irredentist conflicts. In a world in which there is continued pressure on borders and control over resources, from prospective migrants and from the desperate poor, and no coherent theory of territory to think through these problems, this book offers an original, systematic, and sophisticated theory of why territory matters, who has rights over territory, and the scope and limits of these rights. "This is a well-written, well-argued book on an extraordinarily important and until recently neglected topic. Moore is impressively knowledgeable of all the relevant philosophical literature and does an excellent job in general of distinguishing her view from those of others such as Miller, Waldron, Kolers, Meisels, and Nine. Moore succeeds in staking out a new, yet very plausible position-one that avoids the deficiencies of rival theories."--Allen Buchanan, James B. Duke Professor, Duke University"--

States, nations, and borders : the ethics of making boundaries( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines comparatively the views and principles of seven prominent ethical traditions on one of the most pressing issues of modern politics - the making and unmaking of state and national boundaries. The traditions represented are Judaism, Christianity, Islam, natural law, Confucianism, liberalism and international law. Each contributor, an expert within one of these traditions, shows how that tradition can handle the five dominant methods of altering state and national boundaries: conquest, settlement, purchase, inheritance and secession. Written by a distinguished group of international specialists this volume is unique in providing both in-depth normative and comparative perspectives on a troubling question that will offer readers real insight into inter-tradition conflict. Those readers will range from upper-level undergraduates to scholars in such fields as philosophy, political science, international relations and comparative religion
