The Skull Measurer's Mistake: and other portraits of men and women who spoke out against racism. This book is a history of those who have stood against the flow and spoke out, wrote and published against racism and racist ideologies. It is a history of heroes and heroines who took a stand. They were not perfect people and some were against some forms of racism and seem to support others, yet each took a stand for what they believed was right.

This book is a history, or a series of mini histories, of twenty-two people and the ideas or ideologies that they stood against. From Benjamin Franklin in 1764 talking down a mob en route to massacre a native American community, to Theophilus Scholes in 1899 who wrote against the then belief that Europeans, especially Britons, were of Greek descent and heritage.

This book shows the clear progression in racism and racist thought, not through the negative but through the positive - the courage of those who had the courage and fortitude to stand against these hideous ideas and beliefs.

Lindqvist will open our eyes to a heritage we should not be proud of, but that we should all be aware of, lest we repeat the mistakes of the past.

Stunning. Lindqvist is seriously worth our attention. He changes your mind and shifts your attitudes. Continuously enlightening. Great that his stuff is being re-published.
