Selten findet man in Tageszeitungen Editorials mit so einem lapidaren Titel wie im britischen „Guardian“ vergangenes Jahr: „In Praise of Danny Dorling“ hieß das Stück – „Zur Lobpreisung von Danny Dorling“:
There is another I-word that matters far more, and which barely gets a mention: inequality. Thank goodness then for Danny Dorling, who has spent the past 20 years studying the wealth gap. In his new book Injustice: Why Social Inequality Persists, the academic analyses a contemporary scandal. … When he handed in his manuscript, Dorling thought he had written a bland account of the gap between rich and poor. The publisher told him it was „very angry“. And how. Dorling is that rare university professor: expert, politically engaged and able to explain simply why his subject matters. He describes modern Britain as the most unequal society since Dickens’s times, and picks apart the orthodoxies that allow such unfairness. „I’m hardly saying, ‚We want a revolution, we want a utopia,'“ he recently told this paper. „I’m just saying, ‚Can we be slightly less stupid, and we’ll all be better off for it.'“ Hear hear.
