Incredible. I never served in the military or ran for office, but I think we’ve all gone through dark times where we’ve lost ourselves and our connection to the people we love. Jason shows us, under extraordinary circumstances, a way back to the light. This book is for everyone.      fuente

Maldito asfalto
A Novel
S. A. Cosby - 2020-07-14
Calificación de Goodreads
Beauregard "Bug" Montage es un esposo, un padre, y un mecánico honesto. Pero alguna vez fue conocido, desde Carolina del Norte hasta las playas de la Florida, como el mejor piloto de carreras clandestinas de la región. Tal como su padre, desaparecido hace muchos años. Su vida parecía encaminarse, parecía que podía dejar atrás definitivamente el mundo del crimen, que lo marcó desde pequeño. Pero su situación financiera se ha vuelto imposible, las necesidades de su familia se acumulan, está endeudado y a punto de perderlo todo. Pocos lo pueden ayudar en la pequeña ciudad donde vive, llena de prejuicios raciales. Bug detesta tener que recurrir a lo único que sabe: buscar un trabajo sucio otra vez, usando su habilidad incomparable para conducir bajo alto riesgo y a toda velocidad. El maldito asfalto es su condena, es el legado de su padre, y es donde Bug sabe que encuentra algo más, casi como una droga. Por eso acepta participar en un robo de diamantes -le jura a Kia su mujer, “el último”- aún con esos advenedizos que lo han contratado. No debió hacerlo. Algo sale horriblemente mal, y Bug es arrastrado a un inframundo mugriento y asesino, del que no sabrá cómo escapar, sin destruir lo que más ama en este mundo.

Casta book cover
El origen de lo que nos divide (Contextos)
Isabel Wilkerson - 2020-08-04
Calificación de Goodreads
In this book, Isabel Wilkerson gives us a portrait of an unseen phenomenon in America as she explores, through an immersive, deeply researched narrative and stories about real people, how America today and throughout its history has been shaped by a hidden caste system, a rigid hierarchy of human rankings. Beyond race, class, or other factors, there is a powerful caste system that influences people's lives and behavior and the nation's fate. Linking the caste systems of America, India, and Nazi Germany, Wilkerson explores eight pillars that underlie caste systems across civilizations, including divine will, bloodlines, stigma, and more. Using riveting stories about people--including Martin Luther King, Jr., baseball's Satchel Paige, a single father and his toddler son, Wilkerson herself, and many others--she shows the ways that the insidious undertow of caste is experienced every day. She documents how the Nazis studied the racial systems in America to plan their out-cast of the Jews; she discusses why the cruel logic of caste requires that there be a bottom rung for those in the middle to measure themselves against; she writes about the surprising health costs of caste, in depression and life expectancy, and the effects of this hierarchy on our culture and politics. Finally, she points forward to ways America can move beyond the artificial and destructive separations of human divisions, toward hope in our common humanity.

The Elite Charade of Changing the World
Anand Giridharadas - 2018-08-28
Calificación de Goodreads
This investigative book delves into how the world's elite work, manipulate, and rebrand themselves as saviors of the poor while preserving their power and position atop society. The author takes us into the inner sanctums of a new gilded age where the rich fight for equality and justice any way they can, except for ways that threaten the social order. An essential read for understanding the egregious abuses of power that dominate today's news and a call to action for elites and citizens alike to build a more egalitarian society through democratic means.

@AnandWrites is hypnotically articulate and undeniably correct. Listen to this. @winnerstakeall is a book you need to read. It changed the way I think about economic inequality and what we need to do about it. Must read.      fuente
