"A geographer maps the injustices of Selfish Capitalism with scholarly detachment." --Oliver James, author of 'Affluenza'
"Beliefs which serve privilege, elitism and inequality, infect our minds like computer viruses. But now Dorling provides the brain-cleaning software we need to begin creating a happier society. " --Richard Wilkinson, Emeritus Professor of Social Epidemiology and author of "The Spirit Level"
"For injustice to flourish, inequality must appear as natural, normal, innate, and inevitable. Danny Dorling, in this impassioned, empirical, and hopeful book, skewers ideologies that justify injustice -- and reminds us that a necessary step towards creating a better world is collectively imagining it is possible." --Nancy Krieger, Harvard School of Public Health
