Synopsis

Seeking to establish that human beings are overwhelmingly similar when it comes to genetic makeup, Unander, an honored geneticist, argues that the term "race" implies greater differences among groups of human beings than is supported by the genetic evidence. By debunking the premise of The Bell Curve and exploring the history of how science has been abused to justify racism, this astonishing new book weaves together science and history to offer foundations for biblical and theological perspectives on questions of "race."
