Waking Up White is the book Irving wishes someone had handed her decades ago. By sharing her sometimes cringe-worthy struggle to understand racism and racial tensions, she offers a fresh perspective on bias, stereotypes, manners, and tolerance. As Irving unpacks her own long-held beliefs about colorblindness, being a good person, and wanting to help people of color, she reveals how each of these well-intentioned mindsets actually perpetuated her ill-conceived ideas about race. She also explains why and how she's changed the way she talks about racism, works in racially mixed groups, and understands the antiracism movement as a whole. Exercises at the end of each chapter prompt readers to explore their own racialized ideas. Waking Up White's personal narrative is designed to work well as a rapid read, a book group book, or support reading for courses exploring racial and cultural issues.

Every facet of this ancient land seems scented with the famous spices that lured European traders to its shores more than five centuries ago. Here, Muslims, Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, and Buddhists live shoulder to shoulder in a crowded world of multiple gods and juxtaposed pilgrimage routes, each one perfectly peaceful in their own beliefs and traditions. <br /><br />More than one billion people live on the Indian subcontinent, working in a range of industries that begins in the agricultural sector and ends in the high-tech business world of Delhi. Intensified manufacturing and digital technologies have brought modern India into the global market, trading in communications software, customer service, and IT management—but these are far from the technologies and industries that put this ancient land on every map. Long before the British Raj or the tea trade, India was beloved for its spices and jewels. For much of history, India provided the majority of the world’s diamonds from its own mines. Some of those sparkling, perfect gems grace the likes of the British crown jewels.<br /><br /><b>Some of the topics covered in part one of this book include:</b><br /><ul><li>The Indus River Valley</li><li>Mythology of the Vedic Age</li><li>Aryan India and the Great Vedic Debate</li><li>Alexander the Great</li><li>The Empire of Chandragupta Maurya</li><li>Buddhism and the Regrets of Ashoka</li><li>The Return of the Greeks</li><li>The Gupta Empire</li><li>Ancient Mathematical Discoveries</li><li>The Delhi Sultanate</li><li>Babur and the Mughal Empire</li><li>The Taj Mahal and a Story of Love</li><li>India is “Rediscovered” by Portugal</li><li>The Maratha Empire</li><li>The East India Trading Company</li><li>East India Company Rule</li><li>The British Raj</li><li>The Caste System</li><li>Mohandas Gandhi</li><li>The Salt March and Independence</li><li>Wildlife, Then and Now</li><li>A Brief History of the Curry</li><li>The Space Program</li><li>And much, much more!</li></ul><b>Some of the topics covered in part two of this book include:</b><br /><ul><li>The Company’s First Century: Establishment and Growth of the EIC, Rivals, and Issues</li><li>The Company’s Second Century: Growth and Expansion, Trade with China, Financial Crises, and “Statehood”</li><li>The Company’s Third Century: The EIC’s Military Exploits, Indian Nationalism, Racial and Religious Ideologies, and the Dissolution of the EIC</li><li>Effects of the EIC: Changes in the British Society, Impact on Local People Groups, and Growth of the British Empire</li><li>Notable Individuals of the EIC Era</li><li>And much, much more!</li></ul><b>Some of the topics covered in part three of this book include:</b><br /><ul><li>Birth of a Corporation</li><li>The Company on the Rise</li><li>Fall of the Giant</li><li>Structure and Organization of the VOC</li><li>The Good, the Bad, and the VOC</li><li>And much, much more!</li></ul><b>So if you want to learn more about the India, scroll up and click the "add to cart" button!</b>
