Race and Human Diversity : A Biocultural Approach - by Robert Anemone (Hardcover)
About this item
Race and Human Diversity is an introduction to the study of human diversity in both its biological and cultural dimensions. Robert L. Anemone examines the biological basis of human difference and how humans have biologically and culturally adapted to life in different environments. The book discusses the history of the race concept, evolutionary theory and human genetics. It invites students to question the existence of races and to consider race as a social construction that has tangible health outcomes.
This second edition has been thoroughly revised, with new material on human genetic diversity, developmental plasticity and epigenetics. There is additional coverage of the history of eugenics, race in US history, citizenship and migration, affirmative action, and white privilege and the burden of race. Fully accessible for undergraduate students with no prior knowledge of genetics or statistics, this is a key text for any student taking an introductory class on race or human diversity.
