From the Back Cover:

'The Racial Economy of Science' encompassed a range of crucial issues, including a critical revaluation of the sciences in pre-modern high cultures of China, Africa, and the Andes; how science legitimated culturally approved definitions of race difference; the dependence of Third World research of First World agendas; race, imperialism, and the application of scientific technologies in health and reproduction; developmental agriculture and applied biology in the Third World; environmental racism and environmental crises in developing countries; and visions of programs that create sciences for a democratic world community.
