An explanation of the phenomenon of racism throughout history is sought in this book. Carter A Wilson draws on and integrates the considerable literature on racism which has originated from economic, political and cultural realms. In doing so he addresses four major goals: to resolve the major debates surrounding racism; to demystify racism; to provide an understanding of how racism has been sustained in various historical eras; and to discuss how racism takes on different forms throughout history.
