About the book:

When discrimination is race-based, we call it racism; when its gender-based, we call it sexism. Somebodies and Nobodies introduces rank-based discriminationor "rankism"a form of injustice that everyone knows, but no one sees.

". . . 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

Robert Fuller served as president of Oberlin College and subsequently worked internationally as a "citizen diplomat." He lives in Berkeley, California.
