Description :
Race is critically examined from the following angles : its role in the behavioural and medical sciences; its historical origins and manifestations within the Anglophone countries; and its emergence as a liberal concept and operating principle since World War II. Race is found to be a modern construct which arose as a consequence of colonialism and slavery. Efforts undertaken by liberals to humanize the concept since the 1960's has been largely unsuccessfull.
