Description

Attitudes to Race in the Late-Nineteenth. A fascinating and illuminating exploration of race relations and perceptions in Britain between 1890 and 1950, displaying much relevance to our own times.

Texte du rabat

This book focuses on racism as manifested in the popular culture of nineteenth and early 20th-century Britain, exemplified by attitudes to Chinese, Arabs, Blacks, and Jews. There are two chapters for each racial group. Like the book Victorian Sensation, Lesser Breeds is more of a comparative exploration of how popular racism was manifested in the press, what issues it raised and fed off, and what this said about the British people at the time. This would certainly be of interest given the current climate of tabloid racism; it would also appeal to a general and unfailing interest in the intriguingly vulgar British Empire.
