Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 149756073X, Paperback)

The lesser Mannish peoples in J.R.R.Tolkien's Middle-earth books The history of Middle-earth, written by the losers J.R.R. Tolkien has frequently been accused of racist attitudes. But Tolkien was of course well aware of the consequences of racial politics, having passed through both World Wars, and there is much evidence in his texts that the ethnic concepts even of the “good” Men of Middle-earth often led to tragic consequences. This double volume incorporates many references to the lesser Mannish peoples of Middle-earth, dispersed through many of Tolkien's books, and analyses them to compile the history of the First, Second and Third Age as seen by the losers. In addition, the unknown history of Umbaris told and a grid of latitudes and longitudes is drawn on the map of Middle-earth. This book was written for the fans of Middle-earth. Familiarity with the books of J.R.R.Tolkien is assumed.
