       What we know, and why it matters 
520    "Every arena of science has its own set of ethical issues 
       ? chemistry and poison gas, physics and the atom bomb ? 
       and genetics has had a troubled history with race. As 
       Jonathan Marks reveals, this dangerous relationship 
       rumbles on to this day, still leaving plenty of leeway for
       a belief in the basic natural inequality of races.  The 
       eugenic science of the early twentieth century and the 
       commodified genomic science of today are unified by the 
       mistaken belief that human races are naturalistic 
       categories. Yet their boundaries are founded neither in 
       biology nor genetics and, not being a formal scientific 
       concept, race is largely not accessible to the scientist. 
       As Marks argues, race can only be grasped through the 
       humanities: historically, experientially, politically.  
       This wise, witty essay explores the persistence and legacy
       of scientific racism, which misappropriates the authority 
       of science and undermines it by converting it into a 
       social weapon"--|cProvided by publisher
