In this book, Thomas McMahon details the framework for the concept of 'transforming justice' and illustrates its unique relevance stemming from its ability to integrate the abstract concepts of rights, power, and justice. The focal concept is exemplified through the examination of eight twentieth century leaders, whose profiles illustrate their enactment of transforming justice in various forms.
Thomas McMahon holds an M.B.A. from George Washington University, an S.T.D. in Theology from University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome, Italy. He is also Ordained to the Roman Catholic Priesthood. He is Professor Emeritus at Loyola University Chicago.
