Egalitarianism and the Generation of Inequality


Write The First Customer Review

This book presents a historical and comparative statistical assessment of egalitarianism, tracing its rise from the Renaissance and Reformation to the present day. Brown draws on a wide survey of actual distributions of income and wealth throughout history--what is known of them in the past, what form they currently take, and the economic processes that generate them--to analyze the authority of equality as a principle of social philosophy and the practicability of egalitarian policy.
