Slave & Citizen: The Negro in the Americas

£8.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

From the blurb: Slave & Citizen 'deals with one of the most intriuging problems presented by the development of the New World: the contrast between the legal and social positions of the Negro in the United States and Latin America. It is well-known that in Brazil and in the Caribbean area, Negroes do not suffer legal or even major social disablities on account of colour, and that a long history of acceptance and miscegenation has erased the sharp line between white and coloured. Professor Tannenbaum, one of our leading authorities on Latin America, asks why there has been such a sharp distinction between the United States and other parts of the new world.'

1963, Vintage. First Vintage edition. Initial edition 1946.
Paperback book.

Overall in fair condition. Spine is very faded. Cover as a whole is worn. No foxing. Pages are clean and intact.

The language is of its time but the ideas are still relevant to contemporary discussion of American society.
