Publisher's Summary

When discrimination is race-based, we call it racism; when it's gender-based, we call it sexism. Somebodies and Nobodies introduces rank-based discrimination - or "rankism" - a form of injustice that everyone knows, but no one sees. It explains our reluctance to confront rankism, shows where analyses based on identity fall short and, using dozens of examples, traces many forms of injustice and unfairness to rankism.
Robert Fuller served as president of Oberlin College and subsequently worked internationally as a "citizen diplomat". He lives in Berkeley, California.


What the Critics Say

"...a wonderful and tremendously important book on the 'ism' that is far more encompassing than racism, sexism or ageism. 'Rankism' must be our prime target from now on in. Viva Fuller!" (Studs Terkel, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Working)

The First will be Last, and the Last will be First

The author made a compelling case on the concept of Rankism or the human tendency to abuse our position, power, and authority in life. It shines a light on this form of discrimination.
