Brief Description
Detailed Description
Specifications
Europeans had militarily subjugated and occupied Africa in part because they were on a “civilizing mission” to rescue Africans from savagery and barbarism. This book explores one central question, among many others, while interrogating and problematizing this notion: How does understanding “race” help us to better appreciate the subtle ideological motivations and underpinnings of the European “civilizing mission”? The latter notion, it is painstakingly argued, was engendered by the former as an instrument for propagating and glamorizing whiteness at the expense of blackness.
