WINNER OF THE FINANCIAL TIMES AND MCKINSEY BUSINESS BOOK OF THE YEAR 2014 

SHORTLISTED FOR WATERSTONES BOOK OF THE YEAR 2014 

Chosen as a book of 2014 in Observer, Financial Times, The Economist, Daily Telegraph and Sunday Times 

"This book is not only the definitive account of the historical evolution of inequality in advanced economies, it is also a magisterial treatise on capitalism's inherent dynamics. Piketty ends his book with a ringing call for the global taxation of capital. Whether or not you agree with him on the solution, this book presents a stark challenge for those who would like to save capitalism from itself" --Dani Rodrik, Institute for Advanced Study

"The author, an inequality expert, is distinguished. The work is acclaimed. The book's empirical detail is already the stuff of legend." -- Karl Smith, Financial Times Blog Alphaville

"(Piketty's) thesis is simple. The growing concentration of capital in fewer hands has enabled its owners to keep it relatively scarce and thus valuable. (...) You many think that it doesn't require 600 pages to get this message across. This would be wrong. The strength of Piketty's book is his close attention to the different sources of inequality, the massive documentation underpinning his history and conclusions, and his impressive culls from sociology and literature, which exhibit the richness of 'political economy' compared to its thin mathematical successor that has attained such prominence. [...] Piketty's book is a timely intervention in the current debate about inequality and its causes." --Lord Robert Skidelsky, Prospect

"Thomas Piketty who spent long years, during which the mainstream neglected inequality, mapping the distribution of income is making waves with Capital in the 21st Century. Nodding at Marx, that title helps explain the attention, but his decidedly classical emphasis on historical dynamics in determining who gets what resonates in a world where an increasing proportion of citizens are feeling fleeced by the elite." --The Guardian

"The Frenchman's new book Capital in the 21st Century is already causing a stir. Some reviewers have called it the economic book of the year, others of the decade. Piketty's ground-breaking work on the historical evolution of income distribution is impressive." --Paul Sweeney, Irish Times

"With an extraordinary sweep of history backed by remarkably detailed data and analysis, Piketty shows that, for several centuries leading up to World War I, the financial returns to the owners of capital exceeded the rate of growth of modern economies, creating a wide divergence between incomes and wealth and, with that divergence, widening inequality between those owners and people who worked for a living... Piketty's economic analysis and historical proofs are breathtaking." ----Robert B Reich, The Guardian
