The White Man's Burden is derived from Jordan's critically acclaimed, monumental work, White Over Black: American Attitudes Toward the Negro 1550-1812 which received the Parkman and Bancroft Prizes as well as the National Book Award. By removing the voluminous notes and secondary examples, Professor Jordan has created a new trim, strong books whose solidly consistent scholarships is conveyed in a clear lucid style. The full impact of the narrative is maintained and carried forward by anecdotes from a multitude of sources from Thomas Jefferson to David Hume.
