by Isabel Wilkerson
Caste is, in the words of National Public Radio, “a profound achievement of scholarship and research that stands also as a triumph of both visceral storytelling and cogent analysis.” Isabel Wilkerson, the acclaimed author of The Warmth of Other Suns, looks at how an unspoken caste system has profoundly shaped America and compares it to caste systems in India and in Nazi Germany. There are amazing insights on almost every page. Truly one of the most important books to appear in years.
