Angela Saini tells the disturbing story of the persistent thread of belief in biological racial differences.

As our understanding of complex traits like intelligence and the effects of environmental and cultural influences on humans grows, the hope of finding simple genetic differences between "races" - to explain differing rates of disease, to explain poverty or test scores, or to justify cultural assumptions - stubbornly persists. At a time when racialized nationalisms are a resurgent threat throughout the world, Superior is a rigorous, much-needed examination of the insidious and destructive nature of race science - and a powerful reminder that, biologically, we are all far more alike than different.
