The No-Nonsense Guide to Equality - by Danny Dorling
"Danny Dorling's No-Nonsense Guide to Equality needs reading twice. In a world where so much that doesn't matter is slickly promoted in day-glo colors to grab unwarranted attention, Danny makes important points thick and fast. He makes an important contribution to creating a wider understanding of inequality"
- Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett, authors of The Spirit Level.
"Drawing unpretentiously on anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics, politics and history, Danny Dorling shows not only why equality is good for everyone at every stage of life as well as for society, but also illustrates the enormous costs and inefficiency of maintaining inequality. This straighforward, conversational, hopeful and evidence-based book is a winner." - Susan George, political scientist, author and fellow of the Transnational Institute.
an approachable compilation of statistics and historical arguments showing that more equality makes everyone happier, healthier, and "more able". - Steven Poole, The Guardian.
Compelling arguments that will have you question every assumption you held to be true. A fabulous introduction to a new way of thinking about equality and inequality…and the forces that allow gross inequalities to exist. Charts, graphs, and tables that make it clear that the “rules of the game” in economics and politics MUST be rewritten for the mental and physical well-being of all.
