This book should be of interest to a vast audience...All chapters are clearly written and accessible, even for non specialists. This Handbook
covers almost all the themes that are of importance to those interested in economic inequality, whether from a theoretical, empirical or policymaking perspective, which is a great achievement indeed. (Jacques Silber, Journal of Economic Inequality
The Oxford Handbook of Economic Inequality
assembles a star-studded cast and, with an Editors' Introduction, 26 distinct chapters, and over 700 pages of text, it delivers a massive compilation. The objective is to provide "an overview and evaluation of the current state of international research on economic inequality" and "to add new insights and open up novel perspectives for further research." And it succeeds. (Lars Osberg, Review of Income and Wealth
