Caste The Origins of Our Discontents By Wilkerson, Isabel Book - 2020

Disappointing. The writing was disjointed, redundant, and simplistic. I was expecting a more nuanced and in-depth treatment of caste. Instead, she seems to be simply reframing race discrimination as a caste issue. I also hoped for more about the subject of caste in India, but the treatment was mostly anecdotal and superficial. The book as a whole relied far too much on anecdotal evidence; there was far too much focus on "what" instead of "why."
