Editorial Reviews

Review

"This sterling and absolutely needed collection probes the political and historical meanings of DNA, shaping our understanding of human connections and ourselves. Arguing for a multidisciplinary approach to these contentious concerns, this book should be widely read and discussed…a masterpiece." 
Susan M. Reverby, Wellesley College

"Intellectually and analytically strong, this volume comes together in a fluid melding of many different voices and perspectives that, when taken together, provide the richest and best collection of scholarship on the topic."
Troy Duster, author of Backdoor to Eugenics

"Few collections have so successfully straddled the divide between biology and humanities in relation to race. This work will be widely read and cited."
Jay S. Kaufman, McGill University
