Product description

Review

spirited... Isenberg's book will come as a bracing surprise. * Sunday Times * Isenberg's book is too tautly and accessibly written to have been merely a niche academic study... meticulous historical research is supported by an impressive array of cultural evidence... an important book. * The Herald * A masterly and ambitious cultural history of changing concepts of class and inferiority. * New York Times (Notable Book of the Year) * A gritty and sprawling assault on... American mythmaking * Washington Post * A bracing reminder of the persistent contempt for the white underclass. * The Atlantic * This eye-opening investigation into our country's entrenched social hierarchy is acutely relevant. * O Magazine * An eloquent synthesis of the country's history of class stratification. * Boston Globe * [White Trash] sheds bright light on a long history of demagogic national politicking, beginning with Jackson. It makes Donald Trump seem far less unprecedented than today's pundits proclaim. * Slate *
