About the Book

Against Power Inequalities provides a short guide to the contest for power redistribution across the centuries, and draws out the underlying causes of disempowerment which are still with us today.
From the time of ancient tyrannies to the contemporary global society, power inequalities have prevented people from working out what beliefs are reliable, forced many to accept a way of living which is unwarranted, and denied people a chance to make their concerns count when decisions affecting them are made.

It will be of interest to anyone concerned with bringing about a fairer society, keen to see the broader historical picture of how power inequalities have undermined reciprocity in human interactions, and learn more about how progressive advocates and civic activists have joined forces in reversing the concentration of power in those with wealth, arbitrary authority, or status conferred by outmoded customs.
