(p.1) 1 Journeying through Marxism
Inequality and Democratic Egalitarianism

Mark Harvey

Manchester University Press

This chapter gives an account of how the perspectives of a political philosopher and an economic sociologist are brought to bear on how the contemporary extremes of inequality are generated in society. It explains why Marx remains a major focus of interest. It then sets the book within the contemporary debates and approaches to inequality, both national and global. It argues that in important ways the latter are a regression from Marx, whereas this book represents an attempt to go beyond Marx, by exploring deeper and broader analysis of the processes generating inequalities to both market and public goods.
