Caste - The Lies That Divide Us

Author(s): Isabel Wilkerson

Society & Culture

From Pulitzer Prize winner, Isabel Wilkerson Haunting yet strangely consoling, in a world defined by its divides, Caste connects. - Johny Pitts In this powerful and extraordinarily timely social history, Wilkerson investigates the origins, evolution, and inner workings of America's "shape-shifting, unspoken" caste system. Tracking the inception of the country's race-based "ranking of human value" to the arrival of the first slave ship in 1619, Wilkerson draws on the work of anthropologists, geneticists, and social economists to uncover the arbitrariness of racial divisions, and finds startling parallels to the caste systems of India and Nazi Germany. This enthralling exposé deserves a wide and impassioned readership. Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
