A wide-ranging exploration of why inequality persists and what can be done about it. 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. Danny Dorling considers, realistically, just how equal it is possible to be, the challenges we face, and the factors that will lead to greater equality for all.

Reviews for The No-Nonsense Guide to Equality

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. A fabulous introduction to a new way of thinking about equality and inequality. Bob Abramms,, Amherst MA
