Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett:
The spirit level
Why equality is better for everyone
Why do we mistrust people more in the UK tha the Japanese do? Why do Americans have higher rates of teenage pregnancy than the French? What makes the Swedish thinner than the Australians? The answer in each case: Inequality.
This groundbreaking book, based on years of research, provides hard evidence to show:
* How almost everything – from life expectancy to mental illness, violence to illiteracy – is affected not by how wealthy a society is, but how equal it is
Urgent, provocative and genuinely uplifting, 'The spirit level' has been heralded as providing a new way of thinking about ourselves and our communities, and could change the way you see the world.
