Additional Information

Perspectives on race today

Featuring new and engaging essays by noted anthropologists and illustrated with full color photos, RACE: Are We So Different? is an accessible and fascinating look at the idea of race, demonstrating how current scientific understanding is often inconsistent with popular notions of race. Taken from the popular national public education project and museum exhibition, it explores the contemporary experience of race and racism in the United States and the often-invisible ways race and racism have influenced laws, customs, and social institutions.

This book is incredibly well researched and gives an in depth analysis of race relations within the US. It furthermore proposes future areas of research which will be very relevant for our generation and seeks to give the reader a bit of a global context to consider these issues within. Over all this has been one of the best books I have read lately which touches on the topic of race in such a nuanced and detailed manner while maintaining a tone that is accessible for all readers.
Very informative book. Enjoyable as well on account of many interesting charts, graphs, pictures. The chapter on the history of the U.S. census is a gem. This chapter explains how race has factored into the census from 1790 to the present. In 2010, people were allowed to check off more than one box for their race. The chapter does a nice job explaining why this happened and why the official recognition that people can belong to more than one race is significant.
A tour-de-force that covers the subject from beginning to end with an incredibly well researched collaborative endeavor.

Written in simple clear language that anyone can understand, it manages to convey the ridiculously unscientific nature of the "racial" worldview that dominates the US mindset, always in polite, pedagogical terms.

Everybody MUST read this book, it will change the way you view the world.
