CASTE: The Origins of Our Discontents

New York: Random House, 2020. First edition. Hardcover. Signed by the author on a tipped-in sheet that follows the front endpaper, the author's second book. Her first book, 'The Warmth of Other Suns' won the Pulitzer Prize. Poetically written and brilliantly researched, Caste invites us to discover the inner workings of an American hierarchy that goes far beyond the confines of race, class, or gender. A book steeped in empathy and insight, Caste explores, through layered analysis and stories of real people, the structure of an unspoken system of human ranking and reveals how our lives are still restricted by what divided us centuries ago. “Modern-day caste protocols,” Wilkerson writes, “are often less about overt attacks or conscious hostility. They are like the wind, powerful enough to knock you down but invisible as they go about their work.” 476 pages with index. A nearly fine copy (a few faint spots to foredge) in a fine dust jacket.
