In this fascinating and erudite work, George Stocking, America's most renowned historian of anthropology, probes the Victorian origins of contemporary thought on human social and cultural evolution.

George Stocking examines the portrayal of primitive peoples by Victorian travellers and missionaries. He shows how their attitudes towards the dark-skinned savages corresponded to their view of the proletarian masses produced by the Industrial Revolution.
