Donald Franklin takes up the challenge of trying to work out a moral picture that has room for the value of both equality and community. While admitting that no algorithm will solve the problem for us, Franklin nevertheless provides an approach to balancing the two concerns. This is a plausible and novel thesis, setting out both the justification of, and the limits to, partiality. It is a significant, striking and refreshing contribution to the developing debate about the possible justification of partiality. --Jonathan Wolff, Professor and Head of Department, University College London
