    schema:reviewBody ""This book picks its way through a minefield of prejudice, myth and stereotypes. Many of its key terms require qualifying quotation marks: 'black', 'white', 'race', 'mixed marriages' and so forth. Through a Francographic corpus - that is, one of writing in French, primarily in this case from France and its former colonies in Africa and the West Indies - covering the last two and a half centuries since the first French novel with a black hero, it explores the representation of intimate relationships between 'black' men and 'white' women against the largely unshifting but shifty European agenda which determined - and still largely determines - concepts of 'racial' superiority and inferiority." "Presented as a text-based chronological exploration of the relationship, it reveals how racism distorted such relations for a quarter of a millenium. It will fascinate anyone seriously interested in Black studies, Women's studies and Postcolonial studies, as well as in French literary and cultural studies; they will find in it not only many unknown or unconsidered texts but a new angle of approach to their research."--Jacket." ;
