Equality

£10.00

Product description

This book is in very good condition for its age. There is some slight wear at the top and bottom of the spine, and some foxing internally and on the spine edge.

Preface to the 1951 edition. Over twenty years have elapsed since the delivery of the lectures on which Equality is based, and twelve since the appearance of its third edition. Its first six chapters are re-printed, with a few minor corrections, from the last revised edition of 1938. The reader will realise that the England depicted in them is that, not of 1951, but of the yeas which the locust devoured between the great depression and the tragic farce of Munich. The last decade has seen a change in the distribution of pecuniary income; an increase and steeper graduation of taxation; and a considerable expansion of collective provision for common needs. A new concluding chapter has , therefore , been added which, without attempting a detailed examination of these developments, touches briefly on those aspects of them which are specially relevant to the subject of this book.
