Thomas argues that, while negative ideologies of racial denigration have been important, there is also a range of romanticizing, sentimental and exoticist images of others that require fuller appreciation. These images continue to play a significant role today, both in contemporary liberal attitudes towards other cultures and in scholarly disciplines like anthropology. The book aims to offer an account of the development of ideas about human difference and otherness, and of the conflict-ridden expression of these ideas in colonial projects at particular times.
