Carmen Pavel, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Ratner's extensive experience as an expert and adviser to the Unites States' government, international non-governmental organizations and various international institutions on a wide range of issues... brings rich texture to the discussion of the effects of international law rules on protecting peace and respecting human rights. This feature is reason enough to read the book, for a reader unfamiliar with international law will gain more than a basic understanding of
its operation. It also marks the book as a vast improvement over the ample scholarly discourse on global justice, which has paid scant attention to the way in which international law operates and the values it embodies. International law is at best marginal to such discourse, and if it plays any role
at all is to serve as a contrast to strongly idealized concepts of an international global order.

Patrick Macklem, Michigan Law Review Steven Ratners The Thin Justice of International Law offers a timely, comprehensive and theoretically rich interdisciplinary theory of international law's relationship with global justice. It is a major contribution to the burgeoning literature on global justice, with a fine eye to legal detail and institutional design.

Rather, he makes the courageous choice to dive into the deep end of contemporary political philosophy, to engage with arguments made by more than two dozen theorists on topics including war, self-determination and secession, state borders, sovereign equality, human rights, universal jurisdiction, global trade, and international

Alejandro Chehtman, The Modern Law Review The Thin Justice of International Law is carefully written and meticulously argued; it covers a vast array of issues and contemporary debates. Furthermore, it does so with impressive command of the relevant arguments in both law and philosophy. Ratner's conclusions are always judicious and sensible.

Nikolaos Pavlopoulos, International and Comparative Law Quarterly The Thin Justice of International Law provides a unique perspective on the ethical underpinnings of the international legal order and the ability of international law to contribute to a more just world order... [It] is undoubtedly a source from which related interdisciplinary debates can emerge.
