Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Dorothy Roberts

Narrated By: Janina Edwards

Publisher: Tantor Media

Date: June 2020

Duration: 14 hours 54 minutes

Summary:

An incisive, groundbreaking book that examines how a biological concept of race is a myth that promotes inequality in a supposedly 'post-racial' era.

Though the Human Genome Project proved that human beings are not naturally divided by race, the emerging fields of personalized medicine, reproductive technologies, genetic genealogy, and DNA databanks are attempting to resuscitate race as a biological category written in our genes.

This groundbreaking book by legal scholar and social critic Dorothy Roberts examines how the myth of race as a biological concept-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.
