Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Perry clearly understands that 'race' has no scientific basis, and his treatment of racism throughout is admirable. While this book is bound to ruffle some feathers, that is, in fact, a good thing. There are many innovative points made not readily available in other published works, and this is such an important subject that scholars will find this an invaluable resource.' - C. L. Brace, University of Michigan JV
