Summary

The second edition of the bestselling title on modern notions of race, providing timely examination of perspectives on race, racism, and human biological variation

In this fully updated second edition of this popular text on the study of race, Alan Goodman, Yolanda Moses, and Joseph Jones take a timely look at modern ideas surrounding race, racism, and human diversity, and consider the ways that ideas about race have changed over time. New material in the second edition covers recent history and emerging topics in the study of race. The second edition has also been updated to account for advancements in the study of human genetic variation, which provide further evidence that race is an entirely social phenomenon. RACE compels readers to carefully consider their own ideas about race and the role that race plays in the world around them.

  • Examines the ways perceptions of race influence laws, customs, and social institutions in the US and around the world
  • Explores the impact of race and racism on health, wealth, education, and other domains of life
  • Includes guest essays by noted scholars, a complete bibliography, and a full glossary
  • Stands as an ideal text for courses on race, racism, and cultural and economic divides
  • Combines insights and examples from science, history, and personal narrative
  • Includes engaging photos, illustrations, timelines, and diagrams to illustrate important concepts
