Given the centrality of race to American history, The Nature of Difference offers readers relevant primary sources that they would not likely have come across on their own. With so much to offer The Nature of Difference should enrich the study and practice of history and science. The Canadian Journal of History. We need to celebrate our differences, and where we are headed as diferent races in transition (evolution isn't done with us yet). What we are BECOMING might be MUCH more important than the already marked differences we see today.

"Race," co-editor Evelyn Hammonds said in an interview, "is a human invention....We created it (and other theories of human difference), ...and we can think our way out of it." This book demonstrates that notions about race have been embedded in science throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and that dangerous ideas of human difference continue to shape scientific research and "knowledge" today.

I would have to suggest people buy this book, because any information about any research on race is a good thing. In my opinion, for good objective reasons having to do with the future of humanity, race is the absolute most important area of research today along with genetics. On the other hand, I do not know how they even wrote this book at this time since there has been no widely accepted theory or research on the topic of race in the last 75 years at least -- research is forbidden on race, yet people love to say that there is no research showing any significant difference between races? Don't look because we know there is nothing there... seems to be the most widely accepted theory. It is wrong. People who make serious Nobel-prize worthy attempts at theoretical and research frameworks are persecuted, prevented from speaking, and even physically assaulted -- people like Dr. Kevin MacDonald (Jews and diaspora peoples), Dr. Phillipe Rushton (r-k theory), and even Bruce Lahn at the University of Chicago who found major brain gene differences between races evolving quite recently under high selection pressures -- and was forced to apologize and stopped doing his research. This is a tragedy for us all. The genetics of race should be embraced. We need to celebrate our differences, and where we are headed as diferent races in transition (evolution isn't done with us yet). What we are BECOMING might be MUCH more important than the already marked differences we see today. Evolution is limited by, and builds on, what is already there. In races as in all organisms, gene configurations count -- they evolve together, like the airhole, fins, and long snout of a dolphin fit their particular environment. Skin color does not evolve in a vacuum. We need dialog, theory, and discourse on that. Today no one speaks about the continuing process and destiny of race trajectories. We need massive research. The three researchers I mention above could get that started. THEN we could have a book on the research about race. This book is premature.
