Injustice: Why Social Inequality Still Persists (2nd Revised Edition)

by Daniel Dorling - £9.99  Policy Press (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781447320753 | ISBN 10: 1447320751

In the five years since the first edition of Injustice there have been devastating increases in poverty, hunger and destitution in the UK. Globally, the richest 1% have never held a greater share of world wealth, while the share of most of the other 99% has fallen in the last five years, with more and more people in debt, especially the young. Economic inequalities will persist and continue to grow for as long as we tolerate the injustices which underpin them.
 
This fully rewritten and updated edition revisits Dorling's claim that Beveridge's five social evils are being replaced by five new tenets of injustice: elitism is efficient; exclusion is necessary; prejudice is natural; greed is good and despair is inevitable. By showing these beliefs are unfounded, Dorling offers hope of a more equal society. We are living in the most remarkable and dangerous times.
 
With every year that passes it is more evident that Injustice is essential reading for anyone concerned with social justice and wants to do something about it.
