A discussion of the psychology of the colonizer and the colonized demonstrates how historic processes cast long shadows over many societies, and that today's issues are often rooted in the past.The reader is divided into six sections covering:- Historic roots of racism and colonialism as seen in the Crusades, the destruction of the Indies and Colonial Mexico- Scientific Racism and Nationalism- Colonialism and Post-Colonialism - Color-blindness and White Privilege- Afro-Latin America- Humor and CultureThe diverse reading selections range from an excerpt from Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf to Eduardo Bonilla-Silva's 2010 work Racism without Racists, from Thomas Asbridge's analysis of the crusades to a discussion of Sigmund Freud's imaginary trip to South Park.Race and Racism in the West provides students with a thought-provoking examination of an issue that is both rooted deep within the past and completely contemporary.Paul Sweeney received his B.S. in history at Eastern Michigan University.
