From the Back Cover:

Illustrated in full color with images from the popular national public education project and museum exhibition of the American Anthropological Association, RACE: Are We So Different? offers a primer on the central idea of race and on how this notion has changed throughout our history. Goodman, Moses, and Jones explore the contemporary experiences of race and racism in the United States, and the often invisible ways that race influences laws, traditions, and social institutions. New and engaging essays by noted scholars provide examples from their individual experiences, history, and science to deal with the concepts of race and human variation.

RACE: Are We So Different? is an accessible and fascinating look at the idea of race, demonstrating how popular belief is often inconsistent with current scientific understanding. More information on the exhibition and further teaching resources may be found at www.understandingrace.org.
