Summary
Arguing that the early Royal Society moved science toward racialization by giving skin color a new prominence as an object of experiment and observation, Cristina Malcolmson provides the first book-length examination of studies of skin color in the Society. She places the genre of the voyage to the moon in the context of early modern discourses about human difference, and argues that Cavendish's Blazing World and Swift's Gulliver's Travels satirize the Society's emphasis on skin color
