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.

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".

Contents:

Introduction
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
