What People are Saying About This

David Prion Davis

This book is of extraordinary importance and deserves even more attention than it has received from historians of racial thought and of Anglo-American abolitionism. Gregoire presents answers to most of the arguments for innate racial inferiority, even those usually associated with a later period, and also transmits doctrines and beliefs that would later be taken up by black nationalists and Afrocentrists. This new, authoritative translation will be of great use to scholars in a variety of fields and will be eminently suitable for classroom use.
