The second edition of the bestselling title on modern notions of race, providing timely examination of perspectives on race, racism, and human biological variation

In this fully-updated second edition of this popular text on the anthropological study of race, Alan Goodman, Yolanda Moses, and Joseph Jones take a timely look at modern ideas surrounding race, racism and human diversity and consider the ways that ideas about race have changed over time.
