Diversity Boston: Book shelf
Written by: Ian Haney Lopez
Recommended by: Rishi Reddi, novelist, author of "Karma and Other Stories"
"You might think the book is full of dry theory, but its not; through sociological insight and legal analysis, the author reveals how our society has tried, by considering skin color, facial features, body type, and even religion and culture, to regulate who is permitted to become American. A great read for anyone trying to understand why we look at race the way we do."
