Synopsis

"As French and American historians of France are revisiting thehistory of French racism today, William B. Cohen's book is more important than ever. It has become a classic." -- Nancy L. Green

In this pioneering work, William B. Cohen traces the ways in which negative attitudes towardblacks became deeply embedded in French culture. Examining the forces that shapedthese views, Cohen reveals the persistent inequality of French interactions withblacks in Africa, in the slave colonies of the West Indies, and in France itself. Now a classic, The French Encounter with Africans is essential reading for anyoneengaged in current discussions of European relations with non-Europeans and withissues of racism, ethnicity, identity, colonialism, and empire.
