Inequality is the key political issue of our time. Here Dorling brings together brand new material alongside a carefully curated selection of his most recent writing on inequality from publications as wide ranging as the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian, New Statesman, Financial Times and the China People’s Daily.

Covering key inequality issues including politics, housing, education and health, he explores whether we have now reached ‘peak inequality’. He concludes, crucially, by predicting what the future holds for Britain, as attempts are made to defuse the ticking time bomb while we simultaneously try to negotiate Brexit and react to the wider international situation of a world of people demanding to become more equal.

MEDIA REVIEWS

“Peak Inequality…is filled with valuable political ammunition… the cumulative effect of his hugely impressive statistical dissections of contemporary British society is to make a compelling case for a political challenge to centuries of exploitation by the British elite…” Counterfire

“… hopeful and imaginative, sometimes polemical, and full of engaging facts. If you’ve been labouring under the impression that The Spirit Level is the beginning and end of the debate on inequality, this will be a useful corrective.” Jeremy Williams (Make Wealth History)

"The full consequences of eight years of cruel and counter-productive Tory austerity are devastating. There were more than 10,000 extra deaths during the first seven weeks of this year, official figures show, compared with the same period in the previous five years. That’s a 12% increase. Professor Danny Dorling and Lucinda Hiam, who carried out the research, strongly implied that the extra deaths were, in part, the result of sustained underfunding to health and social care.” Jeremy Corbyn, 3rd May 2018 commenting on one of the hundreds of new research findings revealed in the research that underlies this book: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/tory-austerity-almost-certainly-increased-12468792)

"Graphically illuminates why and how place grounds social polarization in politics, housing, education, health, and social welfare – and offers steps towards a fairer world." Nancy Krieger, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

"If you have an ounce of compassion - or self-interest - in your heart, Peak inequality is a must-read wake-up call" Val McDermid, author

"An all you need to know guide to inequality in the UK today" Faiza Shaheen, Director of Class

"This is the essential book about a great affliction of our times. It will become the touchstone in this debate." George Monbiot
