4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Joseph A. Manickam on September 27, 2003
Format: Paperback
Shanklin begins her book by stating, "One of my reasons for writing this book is to put together two ideas of race - as a folk (sociological) concept and as a failed and discarded analytical (biological) concept - into an intelligible, accessible whole, a work that discusses problems with the concept of race on many levels." (Shanklin 1998:1) She then proceeds to do just that. Using current scholarship to build a strong foundation, Shanklin puts into plain English a structure that is often misinterpreted by society to its detriment. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in working with issues of race relations. It will serve well as a launching pad into deeper scholarship.

This book opened my eyes as to why racism exists. I could never understand the fundamental basis for racism and this book takes you back to a time that was very different from now.

I'm really impressed by this book so far. It was assigned as supplementary reading for an anthropology class I took years ago, and I'm finally reading it. It's very comprehensive,fairly easy to read even for someone who has no background in anthropology, and what I like best is that it draws from history, philosophy, communication and other disciplines for a really well rounded and intellectualy stimulating look at the concept of racism.
