7 Reviews
In an era of increasing conservatism and a heightened attack on working people and women, Joanna Kadi's clear prose and arresting poetry strike out powerfully against the dominance of the upper class in all spheres of life. Kadi provides us with a personal and analytical look at how oppression by class intersects with oppression by race, gender, and sexuality. Examining the elite's supposed hegemony over intellectual work, Thinking Class rejects the idea that working people are not thinkers, and affirms the culture that springs up, beautiful and honest, from this society's true base.

One of the best books I read in 2012. Each essay felt like conversation about intersecting oppression with an old friend. Read full review
