PAT THANE (King’s College London): Divided Kingdom: Inequalities in the UK since 1900
17 Bloomsbury Square
This paper surveys patterns of equality in the UK since c.1900, in particular, how income inequality narrowed, espe- cially from 1945 to the late 1970s, but has now returned to much earlier levels. It asks how changes—for better and worse—in this and other inequalities, including gender, race, and age, have come about.
