Book Overview
This groundbreaking book by the acclaimed Dorothy Roberts examines how the myth of biological concept of race--revived by purportedly cutting-edge science, race-specific drugs, genetic testing, and DNA databases--continues to undermine a just society and promote inequality in a supposedly post-racial era. Named one of the ten best black nonfiction books 2011 by AFRO.com, Fatal Invention offers a timely and provocative analysis ( Nature ) of race, science, and politics by one of the nation's leading legal scholars and social critics.
