Is Race Real? What Do We Really Know About Race?

Is race real?  What do we really know about race?

Race is a short word with a long history in the United States of America. RACE: Are We So Different? explores the central idea of race and how this notion has been challenged and changed throughout history.

Illustrated in full color with images from the popular US national public education project and museum exhibition of the American Anthropological Association, RACE: Are We So Different? offers a primer on the complex science of human variation and the history and lived experiences of race and racism. 

"This book brings together compelling evidence from many disciplines to show that ... the biology of race is a powerful myth. It is important, absorbing, educational, and   masterful in its telling." - Daryl G. Smith

New and engaging essays by prominent social scientists and scientists provide examples from their personal experiences and individual research projects, revealing the different ways that the idea and realities of race and racism are experienced.
