Think Now

Along with Jeremy Stangroom, I’m editor of a series of books published by Continuum called Think Now. The series examines central contemporary social and political issues from a philosophical perspective.  The books aim to be accessible, rather than overly technical, bringing philosophical rigour to modern questions which matter the most to us.  We ask the authors take a stand on political and cultural themes of interest to any intelligent reader, and the result is a number of engaging, provocative books.

The series includes:

Libertarian Anarchy: against the state by Gerard Casey

Historical Redress: must we pay for the past? by Richard Vernon

The Ethics of Trade and Aid: development, charity or waste? by Christopher D. Wraight

Just Warriors, Inc.: the ethics of privatized force. by Deane-Peter Baker
