The idea of race may be outdated, as many commentators and scholars, working in a broad range of different fields in the sciences and humanities, have argued over many years. Nevertheless, it remains one of the most persistent forms of human classification. Theories of race primitivism (the idea that there is a 'natural' racial hierarchy and ranking order of 'inferior' and 'superior' races), race biologism (the belief that people can be classified by genetic features which are shared by members of racial groups), and race essentialism (the notion that races can be defined by scientifically identifiable and verifiable cultural and physical characteristics) are deeply embedded in modern history, culture and politics.

Historicizing Race offers a new understanding of this reality by exploring the interconnectedness of scientific, cultural and political strands of racial thought in Europe and elsewhere. It re-conceptualises the idea of race by unearthing various historical traditions that continue to inform not only current debates about individual and collective identities, but also national and international politics. In a concise format, accessible to students and scholars alike, the authors draw out some of the reasons why race-centred thinking has, in recent years, re-emerged in such shocking and explicit form in current populist, xenophobic, and anti-immigration movements.

Maria Sophia Quine is Senior Fellow in the Centre for Medical Humanities at Oxford Brookes University, UK.

Review:

For hundreds of years, perhaps thousands, human beings have tried to establish their differences with the `others' in order to establish who is superior and who is inferior and, if possible, kill the `inferior', enslave them or, at the very least, lord it over them. This fascinating and erudite account focuses particularly on the ways science has been used (and misused) to establish racial differences even though such differences are overwhelmingly culturally constructed. With unflappable zeal we are offered an amazing and well-informed account of the evolution of scientific racism in the 19th and 20th centuries. There is much to learn from this tour de force. * Donald Sassoon, Emeritus Professor of Comparative European History, Queen Mary, University of London, UK * This book provides an excellent overview of the history of race, as well as shedding light on its relevance to contemporary society. The breadth of coverage across different time periods, together with its global scope, with interesting examples from across the continents, is impressive. The authors have treated a complex and challenging subject with great care, thoughtfulness and sensitivity. * Lisa Pine, Associate Professor of History, London South Bank University, UK *
