A Practical Guide to Racism

A Practical Guide to Racism Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A look at the races of the world by a lovable bigot, capturing the proud history and bright future of racism in one handy, authoritative, and deeply offensive volume

Meet ?C. H. Dalton,? a professor of racialist studies and an expert on inferior people of all ethnicities, genders, religions, and sexual preferences. Presenting evidence that everyone should be hated, A Practical Guide to Racism contains sparkling bits of wisdom on such subjects as:

· The good life enjoyed by blacks, who shuffle through life unhindered by the white man?s burdens, to become accomplished athletes, rhyme smiths, and dominoes champions

· The sad story of the industrious, intelligent Jews, whose entire reputation is sullied by their taste for the blood of Christian babies

· A close look at the bizarre, sweet-smelling race known as ?women,? who are not very good at anything?especially ruling the free world

· A crucial manual to Arabs, a people so sensitive they are liable to blow up at any time. Literally.

Including a comprehensive glossary of timeless epithets, with hundreds of pejorative words for everyone from Phoenicians to Jews, A Practical Guide to Racism is an essential field guide for our multicultural world.

About the Author

C. H. Dalton, the famously reclusive former child prodigy, was born into a family of wealthy robber barons in New Haven, Connecticut in 1954. It was there that he first developed his passion for anthropology, making frequent exploratory journeys“below stair” to observe the everyday lives of his famil‛s servants: this only after having been dissuaded from an early interest in lepidopterology by a father who deemed butterflies“too fagg” for his only son and heir.

At fourteen, Dalton received a full scholarship to study anthropology, but he instead concentrated in the biological sciences, hoping to prove a chemical and genetic basis for his earlier observations. Fascinated by both taxonomy and the promise of eugenics, Dalton strove to more perfectly categorize all humankind according to their genetic predispositions.

After receiving his Ph.D. in just three years, Dalton accepted the prestigious Charles Lindbergh professorship in Ethnography at the Institute for Advanced Studies in New Jersey, where he teaches an intensive course load of two lectures every other semester. He has never married.
