by Isabel Wilkerson
Isabel Wilkerson, in her thought provoking book, compares the social hierarchy in the United States with India. She also shows how the Nazi party studied U.S. laws to create their own laws to oust the Jews. She describes the eight pillars of a caste system which include the idea that hierarchy comes from Divine Will. She examines the aspects of dehumanization and inherent superiority of some the people over others. The book concludes with the consequences of having a caste systems--consequences both to individuals and to the nation.
A very thought-provoking book.
