    The Equality Effect by Danny Dorling

    The Equality Effect is almost magical. In more equal countries, human beings are generally happier and healthier, there is less crime, more creativity and higher educational attainment. Danny Dorling delivers all evidence that is now so overwhelming that it should be changing politics and society all over the world. "Here is a book which details - with irrefutable evidence - both the damage caused by inequality, and the benefits we all derive from living in more equal societies. We should all learn from it - and, above all else, act on it." - Owen Jones. The Equality Effect: Improving Life for Everyone, Danny Dorling delivers evidence that more equal countries enjoy better outcomes, with their populations being happier, healthier and more creative, producing less waste and committing fewer crimes. This optimistic book is a pleasure to read, writes Natasha Codiroli Mcmaster, and encourages us to see greater equality – and its social benefits – as being within our reach.

  4. The Climate Majority by Leo Barasi

    Starting at: £2.00

    The Climate Majority by Leo Barasi

    The Climate Majority is not about the climate deniers or the climate activists. It's about apathy, about those who don't talk about global warming - the billions of people who have heard plenty about climate change and acknowledge there's a problem, but who are just not engaged enough to stimulate the change required to stop it. 'Apathy is, arguably, the greatest obstacle facing action on climate change. Amid all the noise generated by the climate debate, Barasi's book shines a much-needed light on this oft-forgotten topic and, crucially, suggests a compelling way forward to overcome it.' Leo Hickman, editor of Carbon Brief Paperback: 200 pages Size: 13.8 x 2.2 x 21.6 cm

    NoNonsense Legalizing Drugs by Steve Rolles

    We urgently need to legalize and regulate drugs – this book explains why, and how to do it. 'Of all mankind’s self-inflicted wounds, ‘the war on drugs’ must be one of the most catastrophic . This passionate, articulate, and numerate statement of the case for legalising drugs could not be bettered. I hope it has the wide readership, and receives the careful attention, it deserves. It should be placed in the hands of all those who are in a position to make or influence policy and to reverse the present disastrous approach to what should be an entirely manageable human problem' Raymond Tallis, Retired Physician and Neuroscientist, Author, and Philosopher.

  10. Peace Beyond Borders by Vijay Mehta

    Starting at: £7.99

    Peace Beyond Borders by Vijay Mehta

    The process of political integration of the EU has eliminated the reasons for conflict, and this model can be exported. How did the world’s most warlike continent become its most peaceful one? Mehta argues that the process of political integration through the European Union has eliminated the reasons for conflict, and that this same model can be exported to Africa, The Americas, Asia, Australasia, and the Middle East and North Africa region, providing a promising glimpse of world peace. 'This book, by an astute non-European observer, uses this unprecedented, extraordinary experience as the centrepiece of a carefully crafted theory on the construction and maintenance of peace and prosperity on a global scale. It is my hope that many non-Europeans will use it as a source of inspiration as they attempt to carve out long-lasting peace in other parts of the world.' -
