Product Details


“Graves’ integration of science and objective analysis with popular biological assumptions of race makes this an enlightening and provocative work.”—Booklist

“Sharply argued.”—San Jose Mercury News

“[A] provocative new analysis.”—Philadelphia Tribune

“Graves is adept at simplifying complex ideas—such as natural selection, sexual selection and genetic distance—so they can easily be understood by readers with only a passing familiarity with the basics of biology. And his first chapter, in which he uses evidence from the human genome project to prove that there is only one race of human beings and explains why physical differences are not an accurate reflection of genetic difference, is particularly fascinating.”—Publishers Weekly
