Reviews

"For decades, social and biological scientists have amassed evidence demonstrating that the human species has no races, and that differences between groups called 'races' are not biologically based. Race and Reality by Guy P. Harrison makes this knowledge accessible, and knocks the props out from under 'scientific' arguments that have been used to justify racism." -Jefferson M. Fish, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, St. John's University, New York "In the beginning of this exceptional book, Harrison laments that he 'should never have made it through 12 years of schooling before entering a university without ever hearing the important news that most anthropologists reject the concept of biological races.' Then in a clear, concise, and very readable manner, Harrison explains why the scientists who study this subject have come to the conclusion that biological races do not exist. He goes on to clarify the many misconceptions surrounding race and athletic ability, racialized medicine, race and IQ, and interracial love, marriage, and parenthood. This is a very important, profound, enjoyable and enlightening book. It should go a long way in helping disprove man's most dangerous myth. --Robert W. Sussman, Professor of Anthropology, Washington University. Editor of Yearbook of Physical Anthropology and Editor Emeritus of American Anthropologist "Harrison challenges us to scrutinize our views about the reality of race and its social consequences, marshalling impressive data and cogent arguments to support his case against the validity of biological race categories. All there is, and all there has ever been, he says, is an arbitrary, cultural division of human beings into different races, based on the most superficial criteria. This is a true work of enlightenment, one man's grass-roots effort to raise our collective consciousness to the absurdity of belief in the notion of race, and to raise awareness of the fundamental unity of humankind." -- George Williamson, PhD; Department of Philosophy, University of Saskatchewan "Guy P. Harrison's comprehensive and engaging book should be required reading for anyone who has thought about the benighted issue of "race." It will clear the cobwebs from your head." --Steve Olson, author of Mapping Human History: Discovering the Past Through Our Genes
