Praise For This Book:
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - OPRAH'S BOOK CLUB PICK - NATIONAL BOOK AWARD LONGLIST - "An instant American classic and almost certainly the keynote nonfiction book of the American century thus far."-Dwight Garner, The New York Times

The Pulitzer Prize-winning, bestselling author of The Warmth of Other Suns examines the unspoken caste system that has shaped America and shows how our lives today are still defined by a hierarchy of human divisions.

"Magnificent ... a trailblazing work on the birth of inequality ... Caste offers a forward-facing vision. Bursting with insight and love, this book may well help save us."-O: The Oprah Magazine

"This book has the reverberating and patriotic slap of the best American prose writing... . Wilkerson has written a closely argued book that largely avoids the word 'racism,' yet stares it down with more humanity and rigor than nearly all but a few books in our literature... . It's a book that changes the weather inside a reader."-Dwight Garner, The New York Times

"A surprising and arresting wide-angle reframing ... Her epilogue feels like a prayer for a country in pain, offering new directions through prophetic language."-Bilal Qureshi, The Washington Post

"A transformative new framework through which to understand identity and injustice in America."-Justin Worland, Time
