Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This is a collection of essays by six prominent social scientists on the ideal of economic and social equality and the ways, if any, in which public action can help to achieve it.

* Amartya Sen offers an overview of how equality can be furthered by public action.

* A. B. Atkinson proposes an official poverty line in Britain as a way to focus public debate and political action.

* E. J. Hobsbawm explores the tensions within the rival demands of language, nation, and culture.

* Dorothy Wedderburn argues the case for the superiority of public action in relation to the National Health Service.

* Albert O. Hirschman scrutinizes the rhetorical devices used to counter proposals for reform.

* Ronald Dworkin demonstrates that liberty and equality are not, as some argue, in conflict.
