Danny Dorling is 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. He is author of several books including Injustice: Why social inequality persists and The Atlas of the Real World.
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, ODTmaps.com, Amherst MA
