Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a book that i'd wanted for some time, but was whincing at the price and no matter how hard I returned to Amazon and stared at the book the price remained the same. It got me in the end and I only wished I bought it whilst at Uni.

This IS an interesting book and ought to be read by those who may desire to know where colour prejudice comes from in the Uk. Admittedly I have only reached page 67, so I am not suggesting this book answer that question, but it is a piece of the puzzle, this I can say.

As a fact colour coded prejudice was invented by the rabbi's during the 15th century with their convuluted lie, namely 'The hametic myth'. Goes to show how much the Pope of the day read his bible, thank God for Martin Luther and his exposing of the Roman Universal Church/Catholic.

The book itself, gives us a convincing picture of 19th century England and its view on race and class and class had more barriers, thanks to the presense of some ex slave abolitionists, such as Douglas et al.

I will read on to see what impact the likes of Galton, Darwin, Herbert Spencer, Carlisle, De Gobbeneau et al made and what of Saarji Baartman and Ota Benga etc.

One for the much needed historical revisionists.
