9780134461625: Human Variation: Races, Types, and Ethnic Groups

Discarding the concept of race as misleading, this text examines the biological basis for human variation and biological diversity at the population level. This is appropriate because of the many ways in which humans can adapt to environments, organize activities, and regulate breeding behaviour. The biological diversity of the human species is a reflection of these adaptations. This text reviews the history, behaviour, demographic structure of contemporary populations, their effects on the distribution of major genetic polymorphisms, and distinctions of body form, size and skin colour.

From the Publisher:

This volume examines the range of human biological diversity in contemporary populations, and discusses and evaluates past attempts to classify and explain human variation in the light of recent data and theoretical interpretations.

From the Back Cover:

Discarding race as misleading, Human Variation: Races, Types, and Ethnic Groups examines the biology of human variation at the population level. It argues that diversity is a reflection of humans' ability to adapt to environments, organize activities, and regulate breeding behavior. This book reviews the history, behavior, and demography of contemporary populations and the distribution of major distinctions of body form, size, and skin color. The book traces the concept of race and analyzes faulty perceptions of human differences and issues of racism on assumed inherited inequality. It incorporates the latest DNA technology into a discussion of genetic markers including their adaptive significance. It also reviews ongoing evolution. The fourth edition of Human Variation: Races, Types, and Ethnic Groups has been revised to include a reorganization of chapters to unite discussions of inherited traits with explanations of their adaptive significance. The book also includes the latest data and a glossary of the latest terminology. A valuable reference book for any reader interested in the biological diversity of the human species.
