Although influential in its time, the first translation of Gregoire's work was incomplete and flawed. This new edition presents a fresh, accurate and complete text of this key document in the history of Western racial thought. The book includes a substantial biography of Gregoire and an analysis of the historical context in which he wrote and the impact of his work

"The Abbé Henri-Baptiste Grégoire (1750-1831), a Catholic priest and bishop, was a leading French abolitionist at the turn of the eighteenth century, a participant in the Revolution of 1789, and a member of its governing assembly. His work An Enquiry Concerning the Intellectual and Moral Faculties and Literature of Negroes was first published in 1808. The first edition in English, the complete text of which is included here, was brought out in 1810 by Brooklyn printer Thomas Kirk"--Digital Collections home page

A reprint of the book by Abbé Grégoire (1750-1831), the French priest who advocated the cause of French Jews at the Constituent Assembly between 1789-91. Having a thorough knowledge of Jewish life in eastern France (confinement in ghettos, subjection to infamous "pig" taxes, prohibition to engage in crafts, and hatred for usury), Grégoire struggled for the emancipation of the Jews, influenced by the ideas of Mendelssohn and the Enlightenment. His book describes anti-Jewish persecutions throughout the centuries and denounces traditional accusations such as ritual murder and well-poisoning, stating that Jewish hostility towards Gentiles, and usury, developed on account of endemic Catholic antisemitism. He connected emancipation with assimilation and the suppression of those traditions which differentiate Jews from the rest of society. Pp. 7-22 contain the preface by Robert Badinter
