White on White black on Black Book Description :

White on White/Black on Black is a unique contribution to the philosophy of race. The book explores how fourteen philosophers, seven white and seven black, philosophically understand the dynamics of the process of racialization. Combined, the contributions demonstrate different and similar conceptual trajectories of raced identities that emerge from within and across the racial divide. Each of the fourteen philosophers, who share a textual space of exploration, name blackness/whiteness, revealing significant political, cultural, and existential aspects of what it means to be black/white. Through the power of naming and theorizing whiteness and blackness, White on White/Black on Black dares to bring clarity and complexity to our understanding of race ...

John Fielder, Colorado's preeminent nature photographer, will publish his 50th Colorado book in fall, 2018. In the mold of Colorado's best-selling book of all time, Colorado 1870-2000, Fielder has chosen to represent his state exclusively in black and white.

Black and White Devils Book Description :

This is a book about the brutality of war, which involved black-on-black, white-on-black, and black-on-white violence. Thank God sanity prevailed, and the area today is quiet and peaceful, the people living in harmony. The readers can join Lieutenant Rolf DeBeer as he struggles to do his duty to his country while trying to retain his sanity and humanity. The book is also a police detective crime thriller, but to my best knowledge, no one was ever prosecuted. This book was based on fact, but I can prove none of it; the readers must judge for themselves....

White on Black Book Description :

White on Black is a compelling visual history of the development of European and American stereotypes of black people over the last two hundred years. Its purpose is to show the pervasiveness of prejudice against blacks throughout the western world as expressed in stock-in-trade racist imagery and caricature. Reproducing a wide range of illustrations--from engravings and lithographs to advertisements, candy wrappings, biscuit tins, dolls, posters, and comic strips--the book challenges the hidden assumptions of even those who view themselves as unprejudiced. Jan Nederveen Pieterse sets Western images of Africa and blacks in a chronological framework, including representations from medieval times, from the colonial period with its explorers, settlers, ...
