John Rawls revolutionised philosophy, yet his vision of a fair society has had little impact on politics. We all hanker after a fair and equal society but seem unable to create one. Daniel Chandler argues that the way forward is hiding in plain sight: in the work of John Rawls. Drawing on the ideas of the 20th century’s greatest philosopher, Chandler shows us how to illuminate the path to a better future, building an irresistible case for a progressive agenda that would reinvigorate democracy and transform capitalism. With infectious optimism, Chandler brings together the most exciting ideas from around the world and transforms them into a coherent political agenda. Free and Equal is brimming with hope and possibility, with the potential not only to shape contemporary debate, but to offer a touchstone for a modern, progressive liberalism for many years to come.

‘a refreshingly hopeful tonic for our cynical times.’
