Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson 387 pages

Although written differently than her first book, The Warmth of Other Suns, Isabel Wilkerson once again gives her readers subtle suggestions and heart breaking, little known examples.  She describes three caste systems in depth, Nazi Germany, India and The United States, and vividly describes how these castes destroy humanity.  In a compelling way, Wilkerson illustrates why there are castes, what is wrong with them and the way castes can be eliminated.  She looks at these three castes historically, psychologically, sociologically, anthropologically and politically.

Caste couldn’t have been published at a better time in our country’s history.  It is an important read for anyone who cares about what is happening in The United States today.
