American Midnight
The Great War, a Violent Peace, and Democracy's Forgotten Crisis
Adam Hochschild - 2022-10-04
Рейтинг 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.

Касты book cover
Истоки неравенства в XXI веке
Isabel Wilkerson - 2020-08-04
Рейтинг Goodreads
Лауреат Пулитцеровской премии Изабель Уилкерсон исследует истоки кастового общества в современном мире и доказывает: в XXI веке людей продолжают делить на касты высших и низших. • Книгу рекомендуют ОПРА УИНФРИ и БАРАК ОБАМА • ГЛАВНЫЙ НОН-ФИКШН 2020 ГОДА по версии TIME, People, The Washington Post и Publishers Weekly • Победитель премий PEN, Los Angeles Times Book Prize и National Book Critics Circle Award • Будущий хит NETFLIX Америка, Индия и Третий Рейх — что общего между этими странами? В каждой из них зародилась своя уникальная кастовая система, разделившая людей на низшие и высшие сорта, и подготовившая почву для современных шовинистических движений по всему миру. В своей книге лауреат Пулитцеровской премии, журналистка Изабель Уилкерсон рассматривает способы угнетения и ограничения людей в правах на основании их национальности, цвета кожи или места рождения, а также показывает, какой ущерб это наносит и их качеству жизни, и экономике в целом. Ее книга доказывает: даже несмотря на прогресс, кастовая система все еще существует, лишая людей равных прав и возможностей, убивая заложенный в них человеческий потенциал. Сплетенная из множества человеческих историй, пронизанных несправедливостью, гневом и болью, книга «Касты» наглядно показывает несостоятельность искусственных правил и предрассудков, которые привели к холокосту, протестам Ганди и законам Джима Кроу — а в XXI веке к масштабным расовым протестам в Америке. Это также противоядие от идей шовинизма и ксенофобии, которые до сих пор овладевают умами людей по всему миру. Подробное исследование расизма, неравенства и несправедливости. Это болезненно резонансная книга, и она вышла в нужное время. The Guardian Книга Уилкерсон — мощный и поучительный отчет о том, как иерархия воспроизводит саму себя, а также призыв к нелегкой работе по ее устранению. The Washington Post Потрясающе смело как на уровне идеи, так и в подаче… Экстраполяция идей Уилкерсон на современную Америку наводит на тревожные мысли о том, как глубоко кастовая система укоренилась в современном обществе. San Francisco Chronicle Сила этой книги — в человеческих историях, связанных между собой, словно жемчуг. «Касты» — это запоминающееся чтение, несущее огонь праведного гнева в острой, как алмаз, прозе, которую станут изучать будущие поколения журналистов. Minneapolis Star Tribune

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.      источник
