Publisher's Summary

Note to listeners: This is an unofficial summary of Isabel Wilkerson’s Caste, designed to enrich your listening experience.

Caste is the “foundation of our divisions," Isabel Wilkerson states in Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. Standing resembles the bones of an old house, "the studs and joists that we can't find in the physical structures we call home." It is additionally similar to our bones, the auxiliary honesty of our innards generally kept imperceptible without X-beams. Caste or position or rank in this narrative resembles a nitty-gritty clinical history. "Station is a sickness." It is a languid toxic substance, "an intravenous trickle to the psyche," supporting a "safe framework" that is likewise powerless against its "poisons." It is cell, "atomic," "neurological," "cardiovascular." Like subduction-zone action underneath the Earth's surface, rank is "the inconspicuous stirrings of the human heart." 

Caste isn't, in any case, about "emotions or profound quality;" however, it does live on the hearts and propensities. Standing is a show, "a phase of incredible scale" with unremovable outfits and unforeseeable content. Rank is in front of an audience, "an exhibition," and standing is, likewise, by one way or another, "the silent attendant in an obscured theater." It is an enchantment "spell." An enterprise. A Sith Lord. A tall structure with an overwhelmed cellar. Like in The Matrix, "an inconspicuous power of man-made reasoning has overwhelmed the human species." It is a stepping stool, and we exist on its rungs. "Position is structure," whatever that implies correctly.
