About the Author:


Winthrop D. Jordan was professor of history, University of Mississippi and renowned writer on the history of slavery and the origins of racism in the United States.

Review:


"Still one of the finest works on this topic."--Andrew T. Miller, Union College


"The best secondary text I've ever found. It opens a class up to racial-ethnic problems, opens eyes to human perceptions. Keep it in print!"--Robert W. Sellen, Georgia State University


"Jordan's White Over Black...[now] published in a slightly more simplified form under the title of The White Man's Burden...is an outstanding work that traces the subtle, insidious and oftentimes unconscious psychology of racism in Western culture back to its Elizabethan origins."--America


"The White Man's Burden provides a storehouse of information on the origins of racism in the United States."--Southern Humanities Review


"There is no better book on its subject; nor is there likely to be one for many years."--History: Reviews of New Books


"Teachers will welcome with relief the appearance of this classic study in a form suitable for classroom use."--Journal of Southern History


"A very readable condensation...[N]ot only does it make Jordan's important findings accessible...but it also serves to throw into sharper relief his main argument."--George M. Fredrickson, The New York Review of Books


"Precisely what was needed to make the brilliant White Over Black manageable for classroom use."--Richard Crepesi, Florida Technological University


"A thoughtful, searching essay on the embryology of racism in the young Republic...For students and scholars, this is a balanced, intelligent investigation of the ideas which fathered Jim Crow."--Kirkus Reviews


"Jordan's abridgement is valuable for his concise presentation of his thesis that there was a mutual relationship between prejudice against blacks and slavery, and that after slavery's establishment, other factors, especially interracial sex, created tensions which led to strict control over blacks and to their alienation by white society."--Library Journal


"Excellent abridgement of a fine work."--Frank Valadez, University of Illinois


"Excellent!"--Professor N.C. Cooper-Lewter, Ph.D., Bethel College


"Incomparable..."--Professor Ernest Allen, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
