            Caste: The International Bestseller

            'The hierarchy of caste is not about feelings or morality. It is about power - which groups have it and which do not' Beyond race or class, our lives are defined by a powerful, unspoken system of divisions. In Caste, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson gives an astound...ing portrait of this hidden phenomenon. Linking America, India and Nazi Germany, Wilkerson reveals how our world has been shaped by caste - and how its rigid, arbitrary hierarchies still divide us today. With clear-sighted rigour, Wilkerson unearths the eight pillars that connect caste systems across civilizations, and demonstrates how our own era of intensifying conflict and upheaval has arisen as a consequence of caste. Weaving in stories of real people, she shows how its insidious undertow emerges every day; she documents its surprising health costs; and she explores its effects on culture and politics. Finally, Wilkerson points forward to the ways we can - and must - move beyond its artificial divisions, towards our common humanity. Beautifully written and deeply original, Caste is an eye-opening examination of what lies beneath the surface of ordinary lives. No one can afford to ignore the moral clarity of its insights, or its urgent call for a freer, fairer world.

            • Internationally sourced

            Contemporary America finds itself riven by a culture war in which friendships, families and communities are under strain and defensiveness and aggression alike are on the rise, enshrined in federal lawmaking and government policy. It is not alone. In such partisan conditions, how... can humans best approach one another across our differences? Taking the study of whiteness and white supremacy as a guiding light, Claudia Rankine avoids simply telling us what to do, and instead urges us to enter into the discussions which could offer the only humane pathways through this moment of division. Just Us is an invitation to discover what it takes to stay in the room together, and to breach the silence, guilt and violence that follow direct acknowledgements of the role of whiteness. Rankine's questions disrupt the false comfort of spaces like the airport, the theatre, the dinner party and the voting booth, where our public and private lives intersect, and neutrality and politeness live on the surface of sometimes fundamental oppositions of commitment, belief and prejudice. This brilliant arrangement of essays, poems and images includes the voices and rebuttals of others: white men in first class responding to, and with, their white male privilege; a friend's explanation of her infuriating behaviour at a play; and women confronting the political currency of dying their hair blond, all running alongside fact-checked notes and commentary that complements Rankine's own text, complicating notions of authority and who gets the last word. Sometimes wry, often vulnerable, and always prescient, Just Us is Rankine's most intimate work, less interested in being right than in being true and being together.

            THE #3 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER Discover the shocking gender bias that affects our everyday lives 'A rallying cry to fight back' Sunday Times 'Press this into the hands of everyone you know. It is utterly brilliant!' Helena Kennedy 'A game-changer; an uncompromising blitz of facts..., sad, mad, bad and funny, making an unanswerable case and doing so brilliantly...the ambition and scope - and sheer originality - of Invisible Women is huge' The Times Imagine a world where your phone is too big for your hand, where your doctor prescribes a drug that is wrong for your body, where in a car accident you are 47% more likely to be seriously injured, where every week the countless hours of work you do are not recognised or valued. If any of this sounds familiar, chances are that you're a woman. Invisible Women shows us how, in a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population. It exposes the gender data gap - a gap in our knowledge that is at the root of perpetual, systemic discrimination against women, and that has created a pervasive but invisible bias with a profound effect on women's lives. From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, urban planning and the media, Invisible Women reveals the biased data that excludes women. Award-winning campaigner and writer Caroline Criado Perez brings together for the first time an impressive range of case studies, stories and new research from across the world that illustrate the hidden ways in which women are forgotten, and the impact this has on their health and well-being. In making the case for change, this powerful and provocative book will make you see the world anew.

            Global Media Commentator Arsalan Iftikhar takes on Islamophobia through the lens of the brutal Christchurch slaughter. In March 2019, a heavily-armed white supremacist walked into two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand and slaughtered fifty-one innocent Muslim worshippers while... broadcasting on Facebook Live for the world to see. After the Christchurch mosque massacre, authorities found the white supremacist's seventy-four-page racist manifesto called The Great Replacement, which railed against Muslims and the idea that brown Muslim folks were ultimately going to replace white people in his irrational Fear of Muslim Planet. Fear of a Muslim Planet begins with the treacherous legacy of the white supremacist Great Replacement theory in the aftermath of the Christchurch massacre. One of the heroes for the Christchurch shooter was the infamous Norwegian anti-Muslim terrorist named Anders Breivik, who brutally murdered seventy-seven people in 2011 in Norway's worst terrorist attack ever and whose own 1,500-page fascist manifesto promoted thr Great Replacement worldview that Muslim immigrants posed a danger to Western societies. As the book further illustrates, minority victims of the Great Replacement conspiracy theory are not limited to Muslims alone. In October 2018, the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh was devastated when a white supremacist brutally executed eleven innocent Jewish congregants in a horrific act of anti-Semitic terrorism (it was the single deadliest attack exclusively targeting Jews ever to happen in the United States). The shooter later told police that he was inspired to commit these murders because Donald Trump was not doing enough to stop immigration. Open your Eyes! the shooter posted on social media in a disjointed anti-Semitic and Islamophobic manifesto. It's the filthy EVIL jews Bringing the Filthy EVIL Muslims into the Country!! The presidency of Donald Trump has only exacerbated the growth of Islamophobia in America today. Fear of a Musl
