Injustice: Why Social Inequality Persists - Daniel Dorling,
This review is from: Injustice: Why Social Inequality Persists (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For those people who, like me, are annoyed by the sometimes altogether subtle (or entirely unsubtle) inequalities of modern life; this will make for a fascinating read.
This book deeply explores the crooked ideologies of our modern society in attempt to out the inequalities present in our society, and is wonderfully written making it both deeply informative but very readable at the same time- even for novice sociologists like myself, and I infact found the book to be incredibly eye-opening and at times shocking.
Having said it's readable- it is rather hefty at times, and it's certainly not a book to be taking to bed with a cup of cocoa; but that being said, it is a truly brilliant insight into the existence of inequality and injustice in society, it's informative and well structured and most of all it is thought provoking.
I recommend this book to those who, like I, want to better themselves and open their eyes to the problems within our communities, and open their minds to thinking in a more positive and equal way.
