Inequality is the key political issue of our time. Danny Dorling wrote his seminal work Injustice: Why social inequality persists in 2010, and as an early proponent of rapidly reducing economic inequalities, he is now much sought-after as one of the foremost contributors to the debates surrounding it.

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.

Danny Dorling is the Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography at the University of Oxford. As well as Injustice: Why social injustice still persists, his recent books include The Equality Effect (2017) and, with colleagues, The Human atlas of Europe (2016).

"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)

"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
