White Trash : The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America

Nancy Isenberg, White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America (Penguin Books 2017).

"Surveying political rhetoric and policy, popular literature and scientific theories over four hundred years, Isenberg upends assumptions about America’s supposedly class-free society–where liberty and hard work were meant to ensure real social mobility . . . Marginalized as a class, white trash have always been at or near the center of major political debates over the character of the American identity."
