"The want of a new and complete system of physiology has been long and very sensibly experienced and regretted by all medical students on this side the Atlantic. As to myself, I am sure I was led most devoutly to regret such a want, throughout every stage of my medical studies. In order to acquire a knowledge of the improvements which had lately taken place in this important branch of physical science, I was obliged to range with an infinitude of labour and attention, through daily accumulating volumes, which it was sometimes extremely difficult to procure. This difficulty was augmented even to impossibility itself with those unfortunately living out of the sphere of public libraries. The mutilated abridgment of Haller's physiology, published in the English language, is (to life a common mode of expression) certainly nothing more than a bare apology for a system. It is imperfect, erroneous, and, in many places, to me wholly unintelligible. In some parts, therefore, it no doubt inculcates truth, in others implants the seeds of error, and in other places again leaves the young mind at liberty to indulge itself in all the wildness and revelry of conjecture. For these deficiencies and faults, I am sure that at least some compensation is made, and some degree of remedy provided in the following sheets, which I am about to usher forth to the world"--Preface.

Publisher's description: In Black Sexual Politics, one of America's most influential writers on race and gender explores how images of Black sexuality have been used to maintain the color line and how they threaten to spread a new brand of racism around the world today. The ideal of pure white womanhood, Collins argues, required the invention of hot-blooded Latinas, exotic Suzy Wongs, and wanton jezebels -- images that persist in the media today in everything from animal-skin bikinis to the creation of the "welfare mom." Men confront a similar bias in a society that defines African American males as drug dealers, brutish athletes, irresponsible fathers, and rapists. Collins dissects the widespread impact of these distorted messages as she explores African American love relationships, sex in youth culture, interracial romance, sexual violence, and HIV/AIDS
