All Rise by Robert W. Fuller
Book DescriptionRobert Fuller's bestseller "Somebodies and Nobodies diagnosed and named the malady of rankism -- "what somebodies may do to nobodies." In this sequel, he further explores the social and psychological costs of this problem and counters it with the vision of a "dignitarian" society. Drawing on his experiences as a scientist, college president, and public diplomat, Fuller identifies rankism as the chief obstacle to achieving the American vision of liberty and justice for all -- and he spells out the steps required to eradicate it. Beginning with a call to action, the author exposes what is at stake by demonstrating rankism's poisonous presence in politics, business, and even personal relationships. By way of solutions, he offers alternative dignitarian models for several fundamental parts of society, including education, healthcare, politics, and religion. All Rise illuminates the subtle, often dysfunctional workings of power in all our interactions, and shows why change is not only desirable but vital.

Author Biography - Robert W. Fuller
ROBERT W. FULLER has been ahead of the curve all of his life. After earning his Ph.D. in physics at Princeton University in 1961, Fuller taught at Columbia University and co-authored the book Mathematics of Classical and Quantum Physics. He was already an accomplished scientist at a very young age, but the mounting social unrest of the 1960s drew his attention to educational reform, and in 1970 he was appointed president of his alma mater, Oberlin College, at the age of 33.
