This chapter presents an overview of the main argument of the book. It gives an account of how the history of science, and the history of phrenology, has traditionally been written as a national story. It then proposes that we need to develop a global history of science. This chapter also introduces wider thematic arguments concerning race and material culture in the history of science.

Keywords:   phrenology, global history, history of science, material culture, race, scientific racism
