When discrimination is race-based, we call it racism; when it's gender based we call it sexism. This book introduces rank-based discrimination - or 'rankism' - a form of injustice that everyone knows, but no one sees. It explains our reluctance to confront rankism, shows where analyses based on identity fall short and, using dozens of examples, traces many forms of injustice and unfairness back to rankism.
