Summary

This set brings together very rare primary sources of two central debates in the USA fromthe second half of the 19th century and early 20th century. Many of the essays in all threevolumes have not been republished since their original publication and are extraordinarily hardto find. Volumes 1 and 2 collect the major contributions to the scientific debate on the unity of the human race inthe 1850s focusing particularly on the idea of hybridity, which since Ray and Buffon had been central to species definition. Volume 3republishes the major contributions to the political debate on miscegenation. Some of the works included are overtly racist in highlyobjectionable ways and serve to document a context that is too often ignored. A particular feature of this volume is the inclusion of works byAfrican-American authors.
