Race in Mind: Race, IQ, and Other Racisms

by Alexander Alland Jr. - £32.99  Palgrave Macmillan (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781403965578 | ISBN 10: 1403965579

The notion that intelligence is somehow related to race is a notoriously tenacious one in America. Anthropologist Alexander Alland provides the most comprehensive overview of the recent history of research on race & IQ, offering critiques of biological determinism. This reasoned, authoritative history also explains the basis of evolutionary genetics for the general reader, concluding that biologically, 'race' cannot explain human variation. Written in a lively , conversational style, Alland imparts real, substantive scientific arguments and cuts through the ideological posturing and jargon that so often characterise discussions about race, showing us a more nuanced and scientifically valid way to understand the diversity that is the human condition.
