Becoming Yellow:

A Short History of Racial Thinking

by

Michael Keevac

New. In this fascinating book Keevak, Professor in the Department of Foreign Languages at the National Taiwan University, explores the development of the identification by Westerners and East Asians themselves of the idea that East Asians are yellow in colour. The author discovers that it wasn't early Sinophiles who started using this term, but anthropologists from the late 18th century onwards who felt a need to lump all the world's peoples into different colour groups. 219 pages. Chapters include -

  • Introduction: No Longer White: The Nineteenth Century Invention of Yellowness,
  • 1 - Before They Were Yellow,
  • 2 - Taxonomies of Yellow,
  • 3 - Nineteenth Century Anthropology and the Measurement of "Mongolian" Skin Colour,
  • 4 - East Asian Bodies in Nineteenth Century Medicine &
  • 5 - Yellow Peril: The Threat of the "Mongolian" Far East, 1895-1920.
  • There is also a list of the works cited, an index and both colour plates and line drawings.
