The Meaning of Race : Race, History and Culture in Western Society, Paperback Book

The Meaning of Race : Race, History and Culture in Western Society Paperback

Description

In The Meaning of Race, Kenan Malik throws new light on the nature and origins of ideas of racial difference. Arguing that the concept of 'race' is a means through which Western society has come to understand the relationship between humanity, society and nature, the book re-examines the relationship between Enlightenment thought and racial discourse, clarifies the nature of scientific racism, and presents a critique of postmodern theories of cultural 'difference'.
