Kate is one of Britain's leading social epidemiologists and co-author of the groundbreaking work, The Spirit Level: Why More Equal Societies Almost Always do Better.

The book demonstrates for the first time that a whole range of social problems - poor health; educational failure; drug addiction; violence - share one overwhelming feature: they are several times more common in more unequal societies. Inequality reduces the quality of life for everyone in less equal societies, they argue.
