    Summary: 
    "Human zoos, forgotten symbols of the colonial era, have been totally repressed in our collective memory. In these 'anthropo-zoological' exhibitions, 'exotic' individuals were placed alongside wild beasts and presented behind bars or in enclosures. Human zoos were a key factor in the progressive shift from scientific to popular racism. This thoroughly documented volume underlines the ways in which these exhibitions affected the lives of tens of millions of visitors, from London to New York, from Warsaw to Milan, from Moscow to Tokyo. Through Barnum's freak shows, Hagenbeck's 'ethnic shows', French-style villes negres, as well as the great universal and colonial exhibitions, the West invented the 'savage', exhibited the 'peop;les of the world', while in many cases preparing for or contributing to their colonization." "Human Zoos puts into perspective the 'spectacularization' of the Other, a process that is at the origin of contemporary stereotypes and of the construction of our own identities. " --BOOK JACKET
