Abstract: Publisher's description: The first book in the series of four educational booklets covers Europe's early contacts with black people and the factors that fuelled the original drive for conquest. From the initial dominance of the Spanish and Portuguese, it traces the establishment of a worldwide colonial system and how that in turn fed Europe's economic development - in particular through the industrial revolution. It examines the slave trade and the genesis of modern racism. Roots of racism provides the historical context and background necessary to understand contemporary race issues.
