Details

As ethnic nationalism rises around the world, race science is experiencing a revival, fuelled by the abuse of data and facts by politically-motivated groups. The story of who humans are and how we evolved is being rewritten to suit their agendas.

Even well-intentioned scientists, through their unconscious use of old-fashioned categories, betray their suspicion that race has some basis in biology. In truth, it is no more real than it was hundreds of years ago, when racial categories were invented and hardened by those in power.

In Superior, award-winning author Angela Saini explores the concept of race, from its origins to the present day.
