phrase, "income inequality" and why people are so upset about it. We are headed into a century where there is going to be very little class
mobility unless some changes are made.
In retrospect, maybe the "complaining" was not so bad. I was more open to acknowledge the existence of the problems she identifies because they were not presented with solutions I would have despised.
I would be interested to read another book by this author. I find the format of compiling essays + articles to be far more digestible than searching for individual articles to read. Well done to the author and I hope they continue to publish more and more.
Also as a black woman, I'm often hesitant to read books on current affairs etc out of fear they would overlook or dismiss racial issues in the U.S. Again, this book did not disappoint and each article was thorough + well researched and marked with empathy you don't see a lot in journalism these days.
I did not know what to expect from her essays, but after reading each one, I now understand the interdependent nature of the events she describes, and how it all interconnects with our current issues. Her writing is very clear and she communicates in a way that makes the complex more simplified in a world that is not black and white.
I gained new insights into the academic world that I never knew existed. Her observations about politics, motherhood and academics just floored me with her truth-telling. I found myself nodding in agreement.
Her book led me to her other past work, as well as her past writings, articles and videos that resonate with what I've felt, but couldn't explain why.
The fog is clearing, and Sarah Kendzior is my North Star.
Thank you, Sarah for your contributions so far, you have enriched another life with your knowledge and passion for the Truth.
