Historicizing Race


What led so many intellectuals, politicians and scientists to believe in, and insist on, the existence of race? In exploring this question this book examines themes in the history of race, including nationalism, imperialism, colonialism, eugenics, biopolitics, fascism, Nazism and communism, from 1789 to the present day. Race and Modernity provides an easily accessible, but conceptually challenging, synthesis of the current research into the relationship between race and modernity, richly illustrated with reference to primary source material. Specifically, the book examines how societies the world over appropriated the concept of race as a vehicle for transmitting social and political messages that transgressed political differences and opposing ideological camps. The authors examine case studies from the UK, the United States, Japan, Romania, Greece and Sudan, among others, and use these to chart the emergence and evolution of the concept of race, and look at the legacy of these ideas for the present day.
