Roots of Racism

The first book in  a series which covers Europe’s early contacts with black people and the factors that fuelled the original drive  for conquest. From the initial dominance of the Spanish and Portuguese, it traces the establishment of a worldwide colonial system and how that in turn fed Europe’s economic development – in particular through the industrial revolution.
