What are the core values underlying socialism, communism and social democracy? Why are social egalitarians so concerned with the distribution of wealth? Why do they value the provision of public goods, such as universal education and health care? An does democracy matter to those who are concerned with material inequality? All these questions and more are examined, explained and explored in The Politics of Equality. In doing so, Myers provides an accessible but in-depth overview to the fundamentals of egalitarian political theory and how it is essential to our understanding of key contemporary debates over issues such as national health care, privatization, and economic regulation. This is essential reading for anyone interested in constructing a more just society.
