|MadSci Network: Evolution|
Barbi: The vast majority of biologists and biological anthropologists no longer believe in the biological division of the human species into "races." However, I believe that there are "folk races," in other words, so-called races based on cultural constructs. For the best books in lay terms I suggest first Stephen Jay Gould's "The Mismeasure of Man." Also you may want to look at Ashley Montague's books "Man's Most Dangerous Myth: The Fallacy of Race" and "Race, Science and Humanity." D.S. Smerken, PhD Murphysboro, IL
