Book Description Sight Unseen explores how racial identity guides the interpretation of the visual world. Through a nimble analysis of late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century paintings, photographs, museums, and early motion pictures, Martin A. Berger illustrates how a shared investment in whiteness invisibly guides what European Americans see, what they accept as true, and, ultimately, what legal, social, and economic policies they enact.
