20 essays reprinted from the Journal of the History of Ideas which contribute to an understanding of how the concepts of race, class and sex were viewed in the 19th century.Many of the articles included in this volume focus on the issues of race and ethnicity with a specifically American examination of the concept of race. Others discuss Marx, Freud and the Jewish question in a similar context. The section on sex differences gives appropriate weight to French thinkers; and Part Four, `From Rank to Class', includes assessments of the influence of Locke and Hegel. The editor's introduction and the essays of Part One: Human Nature, supply a more generalised backdrop against which these issues may be considered.
Contributors include: DAVID E. CARTWRIGHT, DONALD J. D`ELIA, SHLOMO AVINERI, FRANCIS E. KEARNS, FLAVIA ALAYA, DAVID M. POST and C.B. MACPHERSON.
