Description

Democracy and democratization are now high on the political agenda, but there is growing indifference to the gap between rich and poor. Political equalities matter more than ever, while economic inequality is accepted almost as a fact of life. It is the separation between economic and political that lies at the heart of this book.

Reviews

'In this important intervention, Anne Phillips, with her customary clarity, reconnects the case for political and economic equality without sacrificing the political recognition of difference. It may not be a fashionable argument, but it is one which needs to be read and debated widely in the face of entrenched inequalities of material and political resources.' Ruth Lister, University of Loughborough

'Anne Phillips has done it again! Which Equalities Matter? is at once a major theoretical contribution and a salutory political intervention.' Nancy Fraser, New School for Social Research


'In an age of growing inequality, Anne Phillips has written a timely and important book: a politically engaged, theoretically sophisticated, energetic and circumstantial argument for reversing the trend. Egalitarianism finds here a wonderfully lively and skilful defender.' Michael Walzer, Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton

‘An important new book.' The Guardian

'[A] welcome contribution to current debates.' Journal of European Area Studies
