"The Society of Equals" is a work of both history and political philosophy: a sweeping historical analysis of equality since the American and French Revolutions and an effort to reconstruct the understanding of equality for a new age of singularity when everyone wants to be "someone." Does [Rosanvallon] solve the contemporary puzzles about inequality? I don t think so. But he analyzes them in so illuminating a way that anyone interested in understanding and reversing the surge in inequality should read his work Greater economic equality is certainly not inevitable; it will require thought and political organization to make the most of the opportunities that history affords, and Rosanvallon s "Society of Equals "is one of the resources to carry along on that journey.--Paul Starr"New York Review of Books" (05/22/2014)"


During the American and French revolutions, striving for liberty and achieving equality were not seen as contradictory. Modern notions of individualism and individual choice have undermined that bond: we pay merely lip service to equality while our body politic has never been less inclined to correct unequal distribution of income and wealth. Rosanvallon warns us what is at stake here: modern democracy will not survive if it avoids the question of equality.--Andreas Hess"Times Higher Education" (01/09/2014)
