Summary
"This book attempts to reconcile the prevailing dual visions of Darwin as racist and as humanitarian. By consolidating Darwin's fragmentary ethnographic writings, the text charts his switch from early resignation regarding the victimization of native tribes to advocacy for their plight on the basis of demographic, biological, and behavioral evidence"--Provided by publisher
