When discrimination is race-based, we call it racism; when it's gender-based, we call it sexism. Somebodies and Nobodies introduces rank-based discrimination - or "rankism" - a form of injustice that everyone knows, but no one sees. It explains our reluctance to confront rankism, shows where analyses based on identity fall short and, using dozens of examples, traces many forms of injustice and unfairness to rankism.
Robert Fuller served as president of Oberlin College and subsequently worked internationally as a "citizen diplomat". He lives in Berkeley, California.
The author made a compelling case on the concept of Rankism or the human tendency to abuse our position, power, and authority in life. It shines a light on this form of discrimination.
