"Gratitude to Ewen & Ewen for typecasting the arrogance of the lords of this poor world. Stephen Jay Gould could not imagine a better homage."
"Typecasting is merely the most lucid and instructive history book to be published in the new millennium." Kurt Vonnegut
"In Typecasting, two ace historians offer a profound and sweeping study of the most everyday, often unconscious, forms of prejudice. [It's] bound to make you think—and think again." Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Bait and Switch
"With exceptional and profound research on visual culture, Ewen & Ewen have captured a wide-angle view of the impact of racial imaging. Using the history of art as well as popular imagery, they demonstrate the complexity found in mapping and reading this legacy." Deborah Willis, author of Reflections in Black: A History of Black Photographers: 1840 to the Present
"With great wit and dark irony, the Ewens remind us that modern culture has been a sinkhole of pseudo-scientific stereotype and racial hallucination. Few books so properly deserve the title of required reading." Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums
