A CLASS DIVIDED. by Peters, William.


Edition: First printing.

Garden City, NY: Doubleday, 1971. dj. Hardcover first edition - Rather uncommon first edition of this now classic experiment in discrimination, basis for a television show "The Eye of the Storm." After the assassination of Martin Luther King, an elementary school teacher in all white school in Iowa struggled to make her students understand what it might be like to be black, and she came up with the idea of dividing the class on the basis of eye color. One day those with blue eyes were on top, the next those with brown eyes. The experiment succeeded all too well. 126 pp.

Condition: Ex-library with the usual markings, but overall tight and clean in a near fine unmarked dust jacket.
