Health inequalities are the most important inequalities of all, and in the United States and United Kingdom they have reached a formidable size. In this new book from provocative critic Daniel Dorling, health inequalities are held up as the scandal of our times. While health is generally better now than it was a century ago, the gaps in life expectancy between regions, cities-even neighborhoods-have surpassed the worst measures recorded over the past century. Drawing on international studies, annotated lectures, newspaper articles, and interviews, Dorling provides an authoritative critique of this egregious social problem, calling for immediate action against an injustice that any leading nation should be ashamed to allow.
