The second digital-only ebook taster of Unequal health: The scandal of our times by Danny Dorling. Competitively priced, it gives a flavour of one of the major themes: social medicine and contains three chapters from the book, preceded by an all-new introduction specially written by Danny Dorling. This ‘must-read’ will introduce an even wider readership to his work.

With a group of colleagues he helped create the website www.worldmapper.org which shows who has most and least in the world. He has been a member of the World Health Organization's Scientific Resource Group on Health Equity Analysis and Research, is a Patron of the charity RoadPeace, an Academician of the Academy of the Learned Societies in the Social Sciences, and Honorary President of the Society of Cartographers.
