This book is an ambitious and provocative challenge to meritocracy and equality, two foundations of equality theory. In questioning and opposing the prevailing account of what constitutes appropriate employment opportunity, Matt Cavanagh provides a refreshing, and at times disquieting critique of broader anti-discrimination jurisprudence. (The Cambridge Law Journal
The book fully lives up to its provocative title. In the horse-trading of meritocracy versus equality, few have had the nerve and imagination to throw out both these ideals at once. (Nicholas Fearn, The Spectator
