Scientific Racism in Modern South Africa by Saul Dubow

Book Description

This is the first full-length study of the history of intellectual and scientific racism in modern South Africa. Ranging broadly across disciplines in the social sciences, sciences and humanities, it charts the rise of scientific racism during the late nineteenth century and the subsequent decline of biological determinism from the mid-twentieth century, and considers the complex relationship between theories of essential racial difference and the political rise of segregation and apartheid. Saul Dubow draws extensively on comparable studies of intellectual racism in Europe and the United States to demonstrate the selective absorption of widely prevalent conceptions of racial difference in the particular historical context of South Africa, and the issues he addresses are of relevance to both Africanist and international students of racism and race relations.

Books By Author Saul Dubow

Apartheid, 1948-1994 by Saul Dubow Apartheid, 1948-1994, Paperback (May 2014)

This fresh interpretation of apartheid South Africa integrates histories of resistance with the analysis of power - asking not only why apartheid was defeated, but how it came to survive for so long.

Science and Society in Southern Africa by Saul Dubow Science and Society in Southern Africa, Paperback (June 2009)

Examines the relationship between scientific claims and practices on the one hand and the exercise of colonial power on the other. This title challenges conventional views that portray science as a detached mode of reasoning with the capacity to confer benefits in a more or less even-handed manner.

Commonwealth of Knowledge by Saul Dubow Commonwealth of Knowledge, Hardback (October 2006)

Presents a study of the relationship of knowledge to national identity formation in modern South Africa. This book explores how the cultivation of knowledge served to support white political ascendancy and claims to nationhood, and also addresses major themes in both South African and comparative imperial historiography.

This work introduces students to a range of interpretations of one of South Africa's central social characteristics - racial segregation. It brings together eleven articles which span the whole history of segregation from its origins to its final collapse.
