9780674417311: The Myth of Race: The Troubling Persistence of an Unscientific Idea
Review:

Robert Sussman s penetrating study of the major figures who constructed concepts of race lays bare the personal biases, enmity, and corruption that influenced the intellectuals and politicians who framed modern industrialized societies. It also reveals unexpected heroes whose clear-minded insights into human diversity presaged our modern understanding. "The Myth of Race" is a suspense-filled and richly scholarly tour de force.--Nina G. Jablonski, Evan Pugh Professor of Anthropology, Pennsylvania State University"

Review:

Not only is this book a significant contribution to the view of race and racism in traditional four-field anthropology in the U.S., but it is also important to the understanding of global notions of contemporary racism The Myth of Race" encourages us to understand where stereotypes and misinformation fit in our consideration of whether and how notions of biological race remain pervasive in today s discourse and policy.--Yolanda T. Moses"Times Higher Education" (12/11/2014)"

Descripción HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, United States, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 239 x 163 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Biological races do not exist and never have. This view is shared by all scientists who study variation in human populations. Yet racial prejudice and intolerance based on the myth of race remain deeply ingrained in Western society. In his powerful examination of a persistent, false, and poisonous idea, Robert Sussman explores how race emerged as a social construct from early biblical justifications to the pseudoscientific studies of today.The Myth of Race traces the origins of modern racist ideology to the Spanish Inquisition, revealing how sixteenth-century theories of racial degeneration became a crucial justification for Western imperialism and slavery. In the nineteenth century, these theories fused with Darwinism to produce the highly influential and pernicious eugenics movement. Believing that traits from cranial shape to raw intelligence were immutable, eugenicists developed hierarchies that classified certain races, especially fair-skinned Aryans, as superior to others. These ideologues proposed programs of intelligence testing, selective breeding, and human sterilization policies that fed straight into Nazi genocide. Sussman examines how opponents of eugenics, guided by the German-American anthropologist Franz Boas s new, scientifically supported concept of culture, exposed fallacies in racist thinking. Although eugenics is now widely discredited, some groups and individuals today claim a new scientific basis for old racist assumptions. Pondering the continuing influence of racist research and thought, despite all evidence to the contrary, Sussman explains why when it comes to race too many people still mistake bigotry for science.
