 Major Liam McGregor is a career soldier. Chosen by the leader of the United Republic to transport a government protectee to safety, Liam takes on a task that has cost his predecessors their very lives.


Alora of Delawon is an alien princess who holds the key to the survival of mankind. With the women of the United Republic left barren by previous chemical warfare, Alora’s ability to bear humanoid children makes her the government’s most valuable commodity.


Together, they make the trek from the government’s safe house back toward the current capitol, fighting off raiders, survivalists, and an unexpected attraction to one another.


Will their desires put them in danger? Or, will their being together become more important than the mission?

Until recently, struggles for justice proceeded against thebackground of a taken-for-granted frame: the bounded territorialstate. With that "Westphalian" picture of political space assumedby default, the scope of justice was rarely subject to explicitdispute. Today, the scope of justice is hotly contested, ashuman-rights activists and international feminists join critics ofstructural adjustment and the WTO in targeting injustices that cutacross borders. Seeking to re-map the bounds of justice on abroader scale, these movements are challenging the view thatjustice can only be a domestic relation among fellow citizens. Astheir claims collide with those of nationalists and Westphaliandemocrats, we witness new forms of "meta-political" contestation inwhich the scale of justice is an object of explicit dispute. Underthese conditions, there is no avoiding an issue that had onceseemed to go without saying: What is the proper frame fortheorizing justice? Faced with a plurality of competing scales, howdo we know which scale of justice is truly just?

Scales of Justice tackles this issue. Interrogating struggles overglobalization, Nancy Fraser reconstructs the theory of justice fora post-Westphalian world. Revising her widely discussed theory ofredistribution and recognition, she introduces representation as athird, "political," dimension of justice, which permits us tore-conceive scale and scope as questions of justice. Seeking tore-imagine political space for a globalizing world, she revisitsthe concepts of democracy, solidarity, and the public sphere; theprojects of critical theory, the World Social Forum, andsecond-wave feminism; and the thought of Habermas, Rawls, Foucault,and Arendt.
