Franz Boas and His ContemporariesBook - 1996
Williams (history and American studies, Purdue U.) argues that all current theories of race and race relations may be understood as extensions or reactions to theories formulated during the beginning of the 20th century. He explores the analysis of Franz Boas and his influence on W.E.B Du Bois, Booker T. Washington, George Ellis, and Robert Park, provoking a thoughtful historical consideration of the progressions in African American intellectual arguments opposing racism, both successes and failures. The study unveils many assumptions underlying racial relations in contemporary society, offering insights into where the social sciences might direct their attention in the future.
