Unequal Freedom: How Race and Gender Shaped American Citizenship and Labor

I'm the writer of Unequal Freedom, which has got enormously optimistic editorial stories, as may be obvious within the description on Amazon. com. also it has acquired a number of awards from scholarly institutions for its contribution to figuring out race and gender inequality in America.

The sole overview of the ebook on Amazon is via a reader who's complaining that the Kindle version didn't paintings adequately. the 2 stars the reader supplies isn't of the ebook itself, yet of a faulty digital gadget. The reader must have submitted her criticism at the Kindle web page, now not at the website for Unequal Freedom.

I have complained approximately this to Amazon, yet there seems no recourse.

Potential readers: please examine the editorial reviews and prices from studies of Unequal Freedom, and in the event that they sound attention-grabbing to you, test the ebook and post a reader review.
