Since the Great Recession hit in 2008, the 1% has only grown richer while the rest find life increasingly tough.

The gap between the haves and the have-nots has turned into a chasm.

While the rich have found new ways of protecting their wealth, everyone else has suffered the penalties of austerity. But inequality is more than just economics. Being born outside the 1% has a dramatic impact on a person's potential: reducing life expectancy, limiting educational and work prospects, and even affecting mental health.

What is to be done? In Inequality and the 1% leading social thinker Danny Dorling lays bare the extent and true cost of the division in our society and asks what have the super-rich ever done for us?

He shows that it is the 1% that threatens us with the most harm and why we must urgently redress the balance
