This unique compilation offers full-length readings by historically important and contemporary authors, all of whom share a deep dedication to improving the human condition despite fundamentally different philosophies and moral viewpoints. Leonard Harris has gathered readings that represent the major ways races and racism are explained, including both objectivist (race as a natural or biological distinction) and constructivist (race as a culturally constructed category) approaches. This collection also takes into account what racism means in the differing cultural contexts of America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. The contributors include Ruth Benedict, Alain L Locke, K Anthony Appiah, Philip Kitcher, Colette Guillaumin, Pierre L van de Berghe, Albert G Mosley, and others. This volume is the essential starting point for any serious discussion of this critical issue.
