Caste book cover
The Origins of Our Discontents
Isabel Wilkerson - 2020-08-04
Goodreads Rating
Explore the hidden caste system that has shaped America through this immersive and deeply researched narrative by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Warmth of Other Suns. In Caste, Isabel Wilkerson examines the power hierarchy that defines our lives today, beyond race, class, or other factors. Through real stories about people like Martin Luther King Jr. and baseball's Satchel Paige, she uncovers the eight pillars that underlie caste systems across civilizations. Wilkerson also links the caste systems of America, India, and Nazi Germany, showcasing how the cruel logic of caste requires a bottom rung to measure against. This eye-opening read offers hope in moving beyond these artificial and destructive separations in pursuit of our common humanity.

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.      source
