    The problem I have with this book and many like it is not in its intent or its depth and scope research it s that when all is said and done it does not conclusively or convincingly make its case that this or that mostly socio economics culture and poverty is the sole or driving casual influence on demographic outcome differences In fact it comes close to what I ve seen Ben Goldacre refer to as pseudodebunking It also muddles a lo

    This book is exceptionally well written and a joy to read What stood out though was the careful meticulous and balanced research that the author carried out before reaching any conclusions I sometimes wondered where she was taking the reader before she systematically peeled back the lies misrepresentation or simple confusion that surrounds the topic of Race

    The author seems to have neither a good grasp of genetics biology nor the history of the discourse on race in context to nature history To give a sense of her level of scholarship she makes statements such as the following Lewontin s findings have been reinforced over time An influential 2002 study published in Science by a team of scienti

S the concept of race both past and present At its heart race is the belief that we are born different in character and intellectually as well as in appearance It s the notion that as groups of people we have certain innate ualities that are not only visible but which may also have helped define the passage of progress of the success and failure of the nations our ancestors came from But modern science has moved on from these beliefs fi Excellent A great read Thoughtful and considered but still really compelling Still can t stop thinking about it Highly recommend

We can draw lines across the world any way we choose and in the history of race science people have What matters isn t where the lines are drawn but what they meanModern science is pivotal in our understanding of race not because of the lines that thinkers through the centuries have chosen to trace but because once grouped what they thought belonging to these groups signified In Superior award winning science writer Angela Saini explore It was always going to be difficult to follow Angela Saini s hugely popular Inferior but with Superior she has pulled it off not just in the content but by upping the uality of the writing to a whole new level Where Inferior looked at the misuse of science in supporting sexism and the existence of sexism in science Superior examines the way that racism has been given a totally unfounded pseudo scientific basis in the past and how remarkably despite absolute evidence to the contrary this still turns up todayAt the heart of the book is the scientific fact that race simply does not exist biologically it is nothing than an outdated social label As Saini points out there are far larger genetic variations within a so called race than there are between individuals supposedly of different races She shows how pre genetics racial prejudice was given a pseudo scientific veneer by dreaming up fictitious physical differences over and above the tiny distinctions of appearance and how this has been continued and transformed with genetics to draw conclusions that go against the fundamental proviso of science correlation is not causality Saini demonstrates vividly how for example socio economic or cultural causes of differences in capability and even medical response to drugs have been repeatedly ascribed to non existent biological racial differencesAlong the way we come across the horrendous race based acts of the past from slavery to the Nazi atrocities which have been justified by fictitious assumptions about the implications of race But Saini makes clear that this is not just a historical problem One of the excellent aspects of the book is the way that she brings in interviews and personal experience so for example there is a fascinating section on discrimination on the basis of caste in India and attempts to justify this on a genetic basis Similarly she repeatedly shows how white supremacists misuse information to draw incorrect and vile conclusionsThere are fascinating interviews with scientists whose work strays into misuse of evidence to imply something that the data simply does not support With one exception of Robert Plomin whose work seems far solid than the rest and can only be used to support racism by deliberately misunderstanding it a lot of this work seems to have been poorly executed or involves drawing inappropriate conclusions A considerable amount of this nonsense involves I testing yet it has been shown that all I tests do is demonstrate an ability to do well at I tests an ability that can be learned so provides no useable evidenceThe coverage might have easily been extended to cover other discrimination on perceived differences but I can see the benefit of keeping the focus on race For me the only disappointing thing is that Saini shies away from the logical conclusion of her observations Having categorically shown that race does not exist it s ridiculous that we still classify people this way As the author acknowledges we need some means of categorisation to fight prejudice but surely it should be based on real markers such as socio economic means and culture to continue to do so by race having established that race doesn t exist seems oddly incongruous and makes it difficult to counter racists by giving weight to the labels they useOverall a brilliant book highly readable which if there were any justice would put a final nail in the coffin of racism
