Review quote

"Vernon J. Williams Jr.'s The Social Sciences and Theories of Race is a collection of thoughtful, well-researched essays that chart the influence of anthropologist Franz Boas's scholarship on early-twentieth-century racial thinking... A valuable contribution to the historiography of anthropology and racial formation."--Journal of Southern History "Readers who are not yet familiar with Vernon J. Williams's meticulous scholarship on race in America and its accompanying implicit and matter-of-fact activism will find a rare treat in these collected essays written over two decades but consistent in tone and intent."--Journal of Anthropological Research "Provocative and thought-provoking collection of essays... The Social Sciences and Theories of Race deals with important issues in the discourse on race and race relations. It is a volume that should encourage further research and writing on these topics for decades to come."--Journal of African American Historyshow more
