       |tThe origin of racial oppression in Anglo-America. 
520    Groundbreaking analysis of the birth of racism in America,
       telling the story of how America's ruling classes created 
       the category of the "white race" as a means of social 
       control. Since that early invention, white privileges have
       enforced the myth of racial superiority, and that fact has
       been central to maintaining ruling-class domination over 
       ordinary working people of all colors throughout American 
       history. Volume I draws lessons from Irish history, 
       comparing British rule in Ireland with the "white" 
       oppression of Native Americans and African Americans. 
       Allen details how Irish immigrants fleeing persecution 
       learned to spread racial oppression in their adoptive 
       country as part of white America. Volume II explores the 
       transformation that turned African bond-laborers into 
       slaves and segregated them from their fellow proletarians 
       of European origin. In response to labor unrest, where 
       solidarities were not determined by skin color, the 
       plantation bourgeoisie sought to construct a buffer of 
       poor whites, whose new racial identity would protect them 
       from the enslavement visited upon African Americans.--From
