So You Think You Know About Britain?

Issue section: 

Since I have been teaching geography in East London for over 15 years, it is not surprising that I have chosen a book by a geographer: Danny Dorling's So You Think You Know About Britain?

Danny Dorling has spent the last ten years or so turning out books and maps that analyse and present data that describes and demonstrates inequality on a global and national scale.

The Worldmapper project, for example, presents distorted maps of the globe to show inequalities in wealth, health and education. Dorling's Inequality is also an academic book well worth a look.
