The No-Nonsense Guide to Equality
Written by Danny Dorling.
Published in Canada by New Internationalist Publications Ltd. and Between the Lines, 2012.
| A wide-ranging exploration
of why inequality persists and what can be done about it.
Equality is the coming issue of our day. Societies all over the world are experiencing spiraling inequality, led by countries such as the U.S. and Britain, which reached their high-water mark of equality in the 1970s, only to head firmly and swiftly in the opposite direction ever since. They relaxed the controls over corporations and high finance, allowing the rich to become super-rich without caring about their impact on the poor or the planet and ultimately plunged the whole world into economic crisis.
But if does not have to be this way. The No-Nonsense Guide to Equality discusses the positive effects that equality can have, using examples and case studies from across the globe. It examines the lessons of history and covers race, gender and ethnicity, age, and wealth. It also looks at countries that have mapped out an alternative, bucking the trend towards inequality and market mayhem. And it proposes some key ways in which we can restore the levels of greater equality that would sustain us all.
Danny Dorling is a professor of human geography at the University of Sheffield. He has written extensively about the widening gap between rich and poor and his work regularly appears in The Guardian, UK.
