American Midnight
The Great War, a Violent Peace, and Democracy's Forgotten Crisis
Adam Hochschild - 2022-10-04
Calificación de Goodreads
Discover the tumultuous period of American history during and after World War I, when bloodshed and repression on the home front almost doomed democracy. Through the stories of a diverse cast of characters, including Woodrow Wilson, J. Edgar Hoover, and labor radical Leo Wendell, award-winning historian Adam Hochschild exposes the torture, censorship, and killings that plagued America from 1917 to 1921. American Midnight is a groundbreaking work of narrative history that reveals the poisons of racism, nativism, and contempt for the rule of law that still exist today.

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.
Ron Fournier
On page 352 of her extraordinary book, “Caste,” Isabel Wilkerson quotes Taylor Branch: “If people were given a choice between democracy and whiteness, how many would choose whiteness?” And then, more than ever, the Trump presidency made sense to me.      fuente
