BOOK ABSTRACT:

Back Cover Blurb

  1. Where did the idea of race1 come from, and what does it mean? In an age of identity politics, DNA ancestry testing and the rise of the far-right, a belief in biological differences between populations is experiencing a resurgence. The truth is: race2 is a social construct. Our problem is we find this hard to believe.
  2. In Superior, award-winning author Angela Saini investigates the concept of race3, from its origins to the present day. Engaging with geneticists, anthropologists, historians and social scientists from across the globe, Superior is a rigorous, much needed examination of the insidious and destructive nature of the belief that race4 is real, and that some groups of people are superior to others.
