Es Murray's 1994 title The Bell Curve which purported to show differences in intelligence among racesIf the vast majority of scientists and scholars disavowed these ideas and considered race a social construct it was still an idea that managed to somehow make its way into the research into the human genome that began in earnest in the mid 1990s and continues today Dissecting the statements and work of contemporary scientists studying human biodiversity most of whom claim to be just following the data Saini shows us how again and again science is retrof. A good overview of the history of race science I studied a lot of the earlier documents for my own research and they just sounded like such a ridiculous and desperate attempt to justify racial hierarchies Unfortunately this garbage science is coming back in the form of I testing and DNA science The best part of this book was when she covered David Reich s research I would suggest going straight to the source if you re interested His book Who we are and how we got here is excellent How to Keep a Sketchbook Journal title The Bell Curve which purported Me So Pretty!

An astute and timely examination of the re emergence of scientific research into racial differences Superior tells the disturbing story of the persistent thread of belief in biological racial differences in the world of scienceAfter the horrors of the Nazi regime in WWII the mainstream scientific world turned its back on eugenics and the study of racial difference But a worldwide network of unrepentant eugenicists uietly founded journals and funded research providing the kind of shoddy studies that were ultimately cited in Richard Hernstein's and Charl. This is a journalistic account of race science where both terms race and science are scrutinised with a sharp eye Saini is uite up front with her own stance that there s no genetic or biological support for racial difference beyond the merest superficialities such as skin pigmentation Driven by the re emergence of the most pernicious ideologies that many of us thought had been exposed for what they are by the Holocaust and other race based genocides of the C20th this takes an interesting look at the history of race science and the role it still plays in academic research today however contested and controversialSaini is a relaxed writer always accessible and with a sense of humour that is light but with just the right level of suppressed snarkiness witness the anecdote of the geneticist who proclaims that he s discovered the chop stick using gene in Chinese people Well we laugh but of course it s not much of a jump to go from Chinese people are biologically pre determined to use chopsticks to insidious and horrific claims about racialised intelligence racial hierarchies justifications for slavery the creation of race based underclasses and we re soon back at those looming gas ovens of Auschwitz What is most dispiriting about this book is the extent to which highly educated scientists at the heart of the academe in both Europe and the US can cling to old views of racialised genetic predermination and race fate in the face of an almost complete lack of biological evidence for racial difference in humans It s an important point of course but one which perhaps gets slightly repetitive in this book But perhaps it needs to There are some horribly disconcerting moments such as when we realise that Maria Stopes favoured eugenics to stop the wrong kind of people from giving birth in favour of so called racial progress or that the legendary James Watson of Crick and Watson fame was openly racist and sexist and believed that cultural ualities such as Jewish intelligence in the example given is genetically pre determined It s impossible not to snigger at some of the desperate manoeuvers of race scientists in the 1920s when Greeks Italians and other southern Europeans were being stigmatised as having sub par intelligence one scientist claimed that artists such as Dante Raphael Titian Michelangelo and da Vinci were clearly Nordic as apparently was Jesus A high point too is Saini s digging behind the story from 2018 when the mummy of so called Cheddar Man was discovered and offered the opportunity to profile an ancient Briton to the horror of many not least the UK right wing press Cheddar Man turns out to have been black not white Which considering the fact that humans all migrated out of Africa is hardly surprising Light or white skin is an evolutionary development as ancient humans who migrated to less sunny northern Europe needed to maximise absorption of Vitamin D from the sun So much then for all the Brexit associated nostalgia for a mythic white England And of course that s both the point of the book and why it s so important this isn t a light hearted review of old done and dusted attitudes this is about now it s about Brexit and Trump it s about blacklivesmatter it s about the alt right appropriating and mis using science it s about respected scientists and scientific institutions themselves though a marginal number it must be stressed still trying to find the elusive biological basis for race and differentiation and all that follows along with it Many thanks to HarperCollins 4th Estate for an ARC via NetGalley

    Outstanding examination of 'race science' aka racism pretending to be objectivity Extraordinarily good in how deep it goes covering the intersection of 'science' with history culture and politics and showing how very deeply rooted the tendrils are Written with remarkable calm and objectivity which makes the final shout of rage all the powerfu

    Having grown up as part of an ethnic minority group in London during the 1980s and 90s Angela Saini has first hand experience of the racism which was rife during these decades Unfortunately after being heavily discredited race science has slowly and insidiously crept back into public discourse over the past 50 70 years During her formative years the murder of Stephen Lawrence in close proximity to her childho
