"The catchy titles, informal tone and non-technical language render the book accessible, readable and easy to understand. This volume provides a compelling plea that we should all do our utmost to overcome the growing inequalities in health." Public Health Today
"A useful and valuable resource...a strongly argued called for politicians, activists, and citizens to embrace the ideas of the left." People, place and policy
"...highlights of the robust collection include how New Labour's policies targeted but did not achieve reductions in health inequalities". Health Affairs
"Professor Dorling is a meticulous scholar who talks personally and directly to the reader rather than to other academics, and with a powerful message: willful ignorance of the social causes of illness and death is taking us back to Victorian levels of inequality." Sebastian Kraemer, Tavistock Clinic London and Whittington Hospital London
"Forensic, persuasive, original, impassioned, readable and occasionally even optimistic, Danny Dorling frames inequality in such a way as to demand action. His data and analysis are invaluable ammunition." Zoe Williams, The Guardian
"The text provides a wide overview, from a range of different perespectvies about regional, national, and international health inequalities." Dr Patricia Owen, University of Keele.
"The breadth and depth of scholarship displayed in this book is staggering - but what impresses just as much is how engagingly Danny Dorling communicates the important truths about the scandal of our times." Kate Pickett, Professor of Epidemiology, University of York and co-author of The Spirit Level
"Useful for student nurses and understanding inequalities in health globally, as with individuals who migrate to different countries." Veronica Grant, University of Wolverhampton.
