Abstract:

"In his book Somebodies and Nobodies, Robert Fuller identified a form of domination that everyone has experienced but few dare to protest: rankism, abuse of the power inherent in rank. Low rank - signifying weakness - marks people for abuse and discrimination in much the same way that race, religion, gender, and sexual orientation have long done. In All Rise, Fuller examines the personal, professional, and political costs of rankism and provides models and strategies for realizing a post-rankist world in which everyone's dignity is upheld." "Fuller makes the case that rankism is the chief remaining obstacle to achieving liberty and justice for all, and shows how we can root it out. He doesn't propose that we do away with rank - without it organizations become dysfunctional - but rather argues for a "dignitarian" society in which rankism is no longer tolerated. He begins by demonstrating how rankism is rife in our social and civic institutions and then explores alternative dignitarian models for education, health care, politics, and religion." "All Rise describes an emerging "politics of dignity" that bridges the conservative-liberal divide to put the "We" back in "We the people." It argues that democracy is a work in progress and that its next natural step is the building of a dignitatian society."--Jacket.
