Peak Inequality: Britain’s Ticking Time Bomb

Danny Dorling explains how the widening chasm between rich and poor has had dire implications for health, housing, education, demography, and politics in the UK. Today more than 99% are losing out. So how do we become more equal in an age of peak income inequality? And without a full-blown civil war? Inequality may have reached a peak, but it never falls without a fight.

'If you have an ounce of compassion -- or self-interest -- in your heart, Peak Inequality is a must-read wake-up call.'
-- Val McDermid, Author
