Reviews

"Formidable and truth-dealing...necessary." - The New York Times

"This eye-opening investigation into our country's entrenched social hierarchy is acutely relevant." -O Magazine "A gritty and sprawling assault on...American mythmaking." --Washington Post "An eloquent synthesis of the country's history of class stratification." -The Boston Globe "A bracing reminder of the persistent contempt for the white underclass." -The Atlantic "[White Trash] sheds bright light on a long history of demagogic national politicking, beginning with Jackson. It makes Donald Trump seem far less unprecedented than today's pundits proclaim."--Slate "Isenberg . . . has written an important call for Americans to treat class with the same care that they now treat race...Her work may well help that focus lead to progress." --TIME "With her strong academic background and accessible voice, Isenberg takes pains to reveal classism's deep-seated roots."-Entertainment Weekly "Carefully researched...deeply relevant." -Christian Science Monitor
