White on Black is a compelling visual history of the development of European and American stereotypes of black people over the last two hundred years. Jan Nederveen Pieterse shows the pervasiveness of prejudice against blacks throughout the western world as expressed in stock-in-trade racist imagery and caricature. Reproducing a wide range of illustrations-from engravings and lithographs to advertisements, candy wrappings, biscuit tins, dolls, posters, and comic strips-the book raises troubling questions about caricature and parody as instruments of oppression.
