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.

Las aventuras de un guionista en Hollywood book cover
Las aventuras de un guionista en Hollywood
A Personal View of Hollywood and Screenwriting
William Goldman - 1989-03-10 (publicado por primera vez en 1983)
Calificación de Goodreads
Las aventuras de un guionista en Hollywood es el afilado y divertido retrato de las peripecias de un escritor en la jungla del cine americano. Pero no es sólo eso. También es un manual clarividente sobre cómo se escriben guiones y, más aún, sobre dónde y cómo se sustenta ese indescifrable oficio de hacer películas. Desde su aparición en los Estados Unidos, Las aventuras... se ha convertido en un clásico e indispensable libro de cine.

I am reading William Goldman's spectacular book Adventures in the Screen Trade, for the third time. He reminds us: in 1977 best picture noms included All the President's Men, Network & Taxi Driver. They all got beat by Rocky.      fuente
