Description of White Trash by Nancy Isenberg ePub

“White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America” is a great book about the class distinction of American society from the startup to today. Nancy Isenberg is the author of this brilliant book. White Trash by Nancy Isenberg is an extremely fascinating book. A breathtaking work of scholarship, an ode to the unheard voices of America’s poor past and present. Nancy Isenberg’s White Trash is at once timeless and timely. Timeless, in that it shows that class has always been a part of the American story, right from its founding until the present time; timely, in that it spotlights the underpinnings of today’s alarming economic inequalities in a nation that prides itself on being founded on the premise of the equality of all men. White Trash traces the history of class and inequality in America by focusing on the dismal fate of poor whites since the nation’s founding through the various struggles and flash-points that have defined the identity of a nation. For all its egalitarian ideals, Isenberg contends that the poor have always been held in contempt and exploited for political ends in furtherance of the interests of the privileged and powerful in society.

White Trash by Nancy Isenberg

Reckoned as vagrants, they have mostly been banished to the margins of society and eluded the nation’s social consciousness, even if periods like FDR’s New Deal era and LBJ’s Great Society have offered glimmers of hope. Isenberg’s masterly work is an invocation of the moral conscience of a nation to be faithful to its cherished ideals of equality and liberty for all a call to the “haves and have-mores” (apologies to President Bush) to remember the poor amongst them. The American Dream can only become a reality for all when the nation confronts its deeply entrenched history of inequality and prejudice towards the poor, and in so doing, lives up to its moniker of being a “Shining City upon a Hill.”
