Strange Fruit : Why Both Sides are Wrong in the Race Debate Paperback / softback


Debates about race are back and they're only getting bigger.

The US government has licensed a heart drug to be used only on African Americans.

A pharmaceutical company is trialling a white-only anti-hepatitis drug.

A genetic study claims that Jews are more intelligent because of their history of money lending.

There has recently been a massive upsurge in scientific racial research, and in STRANGE FRUIT, Malik reveals this rise is paradoxically due to the efforts of liberal anti-racism; a movement that celebrates human difference over human commonalities.

Navigating readers through the historical and scientific thinking on the subject, Malik shows that races are a social construct - they do not actually exist.

Stressing that scientists should be allowed to study population differences without the distortions of political race debates, Malik provides a gripping and essential guide to understanding difference in a multicultural world.
