Inequality in America: Causes and Consequences is a recent book authored by Rycroft (economics, Univ. of Mary Washington, Fredericksburg, VA) and Kinsley (business law, Univ. of Mary Washington, Fredericksburg, VA) and was written by scholars, advanced graduate students, and expert practitioners. Their book attempts to bridge the gap in scholarship and practice by incorporating the causes and consequences of history, the current state of inequality in the United States, and future consequences if left unresolved. This book is structured according to fundamental topics such as education, healthcare, housing, environmental issues, and the justice system. Using an effective approach to teaching the reader about the concepts, the book then teaches how to practically apply the concepts in real-world situations for optimal results. While the book lacks specificity in the discussion of a global perspective or the impact of leadership approach styles on inequality through history until now, it does provide comprehensive explanations combined with practical instructions for students and practitioners.
