The Invention of the White Race Volume II: The Origin of Racial Oppression in Anglo-America / Theodore W. Allen

Availability: 4 in stock
Introduction by Jeffrey B. Perry
£19.99

In his seminal two-volume work, The Invention of the White Race, Allen details the creation of the "white race" by the ruling class as a method of social control, in response to labor unrest precipitated by Bacon's Rebellion. Distinguishing European Americans from African Americans within the laboring class, white privileges enforced the myth of the white race through the years and has been central to maintaining ruling-class domination over the entire working class. Volume Two details the development of racial oppression and racial slavery in colonial Virginia and, more broadly, Anglo-America. A new introduction by Jeffrey B. Perry discusses Allen's contributions, critical reception and continuing importance.
