Summary
"This excellent volume offers an incisive, indeed, decisive, critique of modern egalitarian thought, whose intellectual strength remains weak even as its popularity becomes ever greater. No summary can do justice to the arguments presented, all of which are strong in the two dimensions that matter most in policy work--a clear sense of theory, and a clear empirical grounding that tests the theories in question. The book's individual chapters all share those characteristics. To be sure, there is, out of necessity some useful overlap in their content, but the overall conclusion is inescapable. Whatever the abstract appeal of egalitarian arguments they cannot survive the institutional, political, and economic pressures of any complex society"--
