II: DWORKIN'S THEORY OF EQUALITY. At a broad level Ronald Dworkin's work has been devoted to developing and defending liberal political theories.

Equality in Theory: $ Ronald Dworkin's Theory: $ Like Rawls’s, Dworkin’s theory of equality has two parts: first, a general theory of justice, and then an account of the principles of distribution. With respect to the first, Dworkin is a monist. We tend to think that justice involves compromises with other values—say, freedom, equality, efficiency and community.
