-Professor Madeleine Arnot, Chair of Sociology of Education, Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge, UK
'This is a truly extraordinary book, combining sophisticated philosophical discussion of the fundamental moral issues linked to equality with solid sociological analysis of existing institutions and how they work to generate inequality, and provocative political analysis of strategies to transform those institutions...It provides a powerful framework for a new egalitarianism for the 21st century'
-Erik Olin Wright, Vilas Distinguished Professor of Sociology, University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA
