Spirit Level


Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett's "The Spirit Level: Why Equality is Better for Everyone" is the most influential and talked-about book on society in the last decade - now updated with a new chapter on the controversy the book has ignited. Why do we mistrust people more in the UK than in Japan? Why do Americans have higher rates of teenage pregnancy than the French? What makes the Swedish thinner than the Australians? The answer: 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; that societies with a bigger gap between rich and poor are bad for everyone in them - including the well-off; how we can find positive solutions and move towards a happier, fairer future. 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.

The Inner Level


Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett's The Spirit Level, now published in more than twenty languages, has been one of the most influential non-fiction books published in the last decade, showing conclusively how less equal societies fare worse than more equal ones across a whole range of social measures - health, education, levels of violence, life expectancy and child wellbeing - and initiating the enormous public attention now given to the impacts of inequality. Based on an equally impressive range of data and analysis, The Inner Level now shows the impact inequality has on individuals: how it affects us psychologically, makes social relations more stressful, undermines self-confidence and distorts natural differences in personal abilities. It demonstrates that societies based on fundamental equalities, sharing and reciprocity produce much higher levels of wellbeing than those based on excessive individualism, competitiveness and social aggression. Like its predecessor, The Inner Level will transform ideas of how we should organise the way we live together.

The Inner Level


The essential new book from the authors of the international bestseller The Spirit Level 'Why are people, particularly young people, experiencing increasing levels of mental illness and distress? Highly readable and authoritative, The Inner Level shows clearly how social anxieties and the problems they lead to rise steadily in richer, more unequal societies' Clare Short, The Tablet, Books of the Year Why is the incidence of mental illness in the UK twice that in Germany? Why are Americans three times more likely than the Dutch to develop gambling problems? Why is child well-being so much worse in New Zealand than Japan? As this groundbreaking study demonstrates, the answer to all these hinges on inequality. In The Spirit Level Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett put inequality at the centre of public debate by showing conclusively that less-equal societies fare worse than more equal ones across everything from education to life expectancy. The Inner Level now explains how inequality affects us individually, how it alters how we think, feel and behave. It sets out the overwhelming evidence that material inequalities have powerful psychological effects: when the gap between rich and poor increases, so does the tendency to defi ne and value ourselves and others in terms of superiority and inferiority. A deep well of data and analysis is drawn upon to empirically show, for example, that low social status is associated with elevated levels of stress, and how rates of anxiety and depression are intimately related to the inequality which makes that status paramount. Wilkinson and Pickett describe how these responses to hierarchies evolved, and why the impacts of inequality on us are so severe. In doing so, they challenge the conception that humans are innately competitive and self-interested. They undermine, too, the idea that inequality is the product of 'natural' differences in individual ability. This book sheds new light on many of the most urgent problems facing societies today, but it is not just an index of our ills. It demonstrates that societies based on fundamental equalities, sharing and reciprocity generate much higher levels of well-being, and lays out the path towards them.

Rovnováha


Proč jsme nedůvěřivější spíše k Britům než k Japoncům? Proč mají Spojené státy vyšší míru těhotenství nezletilých než Francie? Jak to, že jsou Řekové obéznější a Švédi štíhlejší? Příčinou je: sociální nerovnost. Tato průkopnická kniha dvou britských akademiků, založená na mnohaletém výzkumu, poskytuje důkazy o tom, že: • téměř vše – od délky života po četnost depresí, od násilí po negramotnost – je ovlivněno ne tím, jak je společnost bohatá, ale jak je rovnostářská; • společnosti s větší propastí mezi bohatými a chudými jsou špatné pro každého člena této společnosti – včetně bohatých; • můžeme najít pozitivní řešení a dojít k spokojenější a spravedlivější budoucnosti. Kniha předkládá pozoruhodné údaje; rozdíly, a to i mezi bohatými tržními demokraciemi navzájem, jsou markantní. Jde k jádru zjevného kontrastu mezi materiálním úspěchem a sociálními nedostatky mnoha moderních společností, ale neposkytuje nám toliko klíč k diagnóze našich neduhů. Říká nám také, jak přesunout rovnováhu od sebestředného individualistického „konzumerismu“ k přátelštější a více spolupracující společnosti. Ukazuje cestu ven ze sociálních a environmentálních problémů a otevírá nové přístupy k zlepšení skutečné kvality života, a to nejen pro chudé, ale pro každého. Naléhavá, provokativní a skutečně povznášející kniha může být předzvěstí nového způsobu myšlení a měla by oživit naši politiku a veřejnou debatu o tom, jak naše společenství uspořádat.
