This book is about JUSTICE. The definition, how to achieve it, and all things related to it. It's a classic, that should be taught in high schools. A bit of a difficult read at times, but try reading it out of order. For class, we read it much out of sequence (1,2,5,7,9,3,8,11,4,6,10) it made a lot more sence, and left you feeling with the urge to go storm the White House for a reform.
