Race: A History Beyond Black and White

Out of stock
Echoing the scholar Margot Minardi, Marc Aronson says race "is a way of explaining human difference and organizing people into categories. . . . We have forgotten that we did not always have these beliefs, and that our ideas have changed over time." In this book, he traces thoughts about race to their origins and attempts to chart their development throughout history. From the biblical and ancient worlds to contemporary society, Aronson describes the persistence of a troubling idea. Includes black-and-white illustrations, notes, list of abbreviations, and bibliography.
