"Race" is a four-letter word : the genesis of the concept by C. Loring Brace( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A tour de force work by a leading scholar, "Race" Is a Four-Letter Word explores the history of the concept of race in America, the reasons why the concept has no biological validity, and the ways in which it grew to become accepted as an idea that virtually everyone regards as self-evident. An ardent and eloquent opponent of typology, essentialism, and stereotyping, C. Loring Brace has based this engaging study on the "Problems of Race" course that he has taught at the University of Michigan for the past thirty-five years. Opening with an explanation of why the concept of race is biologically indefensible, "Race" Is a Four-Letter Word shows how the major elements of human biological variation have unrelated distributions and cannot be understood if the existence of "races" is assumed as a starting point. The book then examines the course of events that created the concept of race, journeying through time from Herodotus through Marco Polo; to the Renaissance and the role of the New World; on up to the American Civil War, the curious results of the alliance switch in World War I, Arthur Jensen, The Bell Curve, J. Philippe Rushton, and the Pioneer Fund in the twenty-first century. Ideal as a supplementary text in anthropology courses, "Race" Is a Four-Letter Word can also be used in history of science courses and sociology courses. It is captivating reading for professionals and anyone else who seeks enlightenment on the socially debatable issue of "race."

Man in evolutionary perspective by C. Loring Brace( Book )

7 editions published between 1973 and 1980 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today's pace of research and discovery in physical anthropology is so great that professional articles on the subject rapidly go out of date. For example, today's answers to the question, 'What is man?' are framed in a perspective of geological time undreamed of little more than a dozen years ago. This book of many recent articles attempts to meet the need of bringing together the latest pertinent research by exposing the reader to the work of anthropologists as well as influential work done by scholars in fields such as paleontology, physiology, and psychology. The editors have structured this representative research in such a way as to bring a better understanding to the reader of human evolution. The book considers the role man's primate relatives played, and the limitations and insights gained from the evolutionary approach. It also examines the direct evidence of the human past, and the origin and meaning of differences in living humans."--Back cover
