About this product
- DescriptionIn the UK, as in other rich countries, the 'playing-field' is anything but level and the family plays a surprisingly crucial part in maintaining inequality from one generation to the next. This book explores how seemingly mundane aspects of family life - from the right to inherit income, to the reading of bedtime stories - raise fundamental questions of social justice. Taking fairness seriously, it argues, means rethinking what equality of opportunity means.
- Author BiographyGideon Calder is Senior Lecturer in Social Sciences and Social Policy at Swansea University. The author or editor of eight books, he is co-editor of the journal Ethics and Social Welfare, and of the forthcoming Routledge Handbook of the Philosophy of Childhood and Children.
