Have you seen the full range of No-Nonsense Guides?
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.
This is a highly readable and fully referenced work by an experienced author and journalist. Unlike other works on the subject this is a positive book - it examines all the problems of inequality but also emphasizes cases of equality and how it can be further advanced.
Includes a foreword from Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson, authors of the bestselling "The Spirit Level: Why Greater Equality Makes Societies Stronger".
1. What is equality?
2. Why equality matters
3. When we were more equal
4. Where equality can be found
5. How we get greater equality

The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
New Internationalist is an organization that deserves full credit for commissioning and publishing this worthy contribution to public debate. Marshalling an array of arguments and evidence to support the case for equality, as this book does, is very useful.
New Internationalist keeps me focussed on the realities of the wider world and helps to keep my rushed life in perspective.
The Education Web Guide team were particularly impressed by the quality and educational content (of the New Internationalist magazine)
I began buying the New Internationalist magazine because it started to educate me on issues that I was interested in; globalization, fair trade, inequities, injustice ... it has huge authority and credibility and authenticity ...
A little about Sabahar: Sabahar ensures fair trade principles apply in the emerging new silk handicraft industry in Ethiopia.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
