The sequel to the global phenomenon The Spirit Level, one of the most influential publications of the past decade, Wilkinson and Pickett’s new book, The Inner Level, explores the psychological impact of inequality on individuals and demonstrates that it makes social relations more stressful. Conversely, it shows that societies based on sharing and reciprocity produce much higher levels of well being. Like its predecessor, The Inner Level, based on empirical evidence, will reframe the debate about inequality. Wilkinson is Honorary Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health at University College London. Pickett is Professor of Epidemiology and Research Champion for Justice and Equality at the University of York. They discuss the implications of their findings with Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP.
