Summary
Painter traces the roots of Western civilization and the creation of the idea of a 'white' race, often for economic, scientific and political ends. She shows how the origins of American identity in the 18th century were intrinsically tied to the elevation of white skin into the embodiment of beauty, power and intelligence
