About this item

Race and Human Diversity is an introduction to the study of human diversity in both its biological and cultural dimensions. This text examines the biological basis of human difference and how humans have biologically and culturally adapted to life in different environments. Anemone’s book is the only text of its kind to provide an overview of the history of race concept, a discussion of evolutionary theory and human genetics, and a discussion of race as a social construction that has tangible health outcomes.

This second edition includes new sections on developmental plasticity and epigenetics, human genetic diversity, race and sport, and white privilege and the burden of race. In addition, each chapter has been fully revised and updated, with expanded sections on citizenship and migration restrictions, affirmative action in US universities, and race in US history.

Fully accessible for undergraduate students with no prior knowledge of statistics or genetics, the book is an essential textbook for any student taking an introductory class on race or human diversity.
