Very Well Explained

Any additional comments?

This is well written and will teach the listeners a lot! A little too elementary for most adults but many probably don't know the subject matter. So all will learn from this book.

It is a detailed Book

Any additional comments?

This is a very detailed survey audiobook about the manufacture of racial identity. Easier to digest the cultural, social, political, historical and economic implications. It's a riveting non-fiction narrative.
