Inequality - it doesn't have to be like this,
This review is from: Fair Play: A Daniel Dorling reader on social justice (Paperback)
There was (small) anti-banker demonstration recently outside one of central London's public buildings. A bystander asked 'What are they angry about?' Perhaps thinking of the government's claim that we are all in the current crisis together - while bankers' bonuses rise and the ranks of the poor grow each day, another bystander replied 'What is there not to be angry about?'
Daniel Dorling is a geographer in academia who likes maps (as many do)and is also very much aware of the growth of inequality and poverty. His previous writing on this has been in an accessible academic style, and his book 'Fair Play' now adds a collection of his newspaper and journal articles, lectures and presentations, and material published in other ways, to that portfolio. His style is again accessible, but also analytical and well-supported by evidence. He is clearly not a one slogan 'its all the bankers fault' man, and the book deserves to be widely read.
