Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Swedish author of internationally acclaimed books on Africa, China, and Latin America profiles more than twenty men and women who, while not themselves victims of racism, went againt the temper of the time to expose the many faces of prejudice. Well-documented and rich in anecdote, the book shows how racist arguments emerged and re-emerged over time.

Book News Annotation:

Profiles some 20 19th-century men and women who spoke out against racism and the flaws behind racist science, including Benjamin Franklin, Helen Hunt, and Alexis de Tocqueville. Shows how racist arguments emerged and re-emerged over time and details intellectual struggles between racists and antiracists and the responses of public opinion. For general readers.
