Pressestimmen"A very clear and accessible introduction to debates about equality in contemporary mainstream Anglophone political theory ... It is a remarkable feat that White has managed to cover such an extensive literature in such a condensed format." Community Development Journal "This is the only book of its kind offering a thorough discussion of the value of equality in all its dimensions. I have no doubt that it will become a minor classic in a short time." Paul Kelly, London School of Economics and Political Science "This is a terrific book, carefully and accessibly written, covering a lot of material without oversimplifying. Just right for the series." Harry Brighouse, University of Wisconsin
