Author of International best seller, Justice, Michael J. Sandel, does not disappoint with his new book. George F. Will (a professor of mine at James Madison College, MSU and a conservative), says of Sandel's latest book, "His aim is not to boss people around but to bring them around to the pleasures of thinking clearly about large questions of social policy."
Democracy thrives on civil debate, Michael Sandel says -- but we're shamefully out of practice. He leads a fun refresher, with TEDsters sparring over a recent Supreme Court case (PGA Tour Inc. v. Martin) whose outcome reveals the critical ingredient in justice.

Grapple with famous thinkers of the past and some of the most hotly contested issues of our time.
