The concept of race has had a powerful impact on history and continues to s hape the world today in profound ways. Most people derive their attitudes a bout race from their family, culture, and education.

Yet even among scientists, who understand the current evidence, there is great controversy regarding the d efinition of the term race or even the usefulness of thinking in terms of r ace at all. Drawing on research from diverse sources and interviews with key scientists , award-winning journalist Guy P. Harrison surveys the current state of a v olatile, important, and confusing subject. Harrison's thorough approach exp lores all sides of the issue, including such questions as these: • If analysis of the human genome reveals that all human beings are 99.9% a like, how meaningful are racial differences? • Is the concept of race merely a cultural invention? • If race distinctions are at least partially based in biological reality, how do we decide the number of races? Are there just three or maybe 3 milli on? • What do studies of racial attitudes reveal?

Why We Get Sick: The New Science of Darwinian Medicine by Randolph M. Nesse , George C. Williams, Randolph M. Neese The next time you get sick, consider this before picking up the aspirin: yo ur body may be doing exactly what it's supposed to. In this ground-breaking book, two pioneers of the science of Darwinian medicine argue that illness as well as the factors that predispose us toward it are subject to the sam e laws of natural selection that otherwise make our bodies such miracles of design. Among the concerns they raise: When may a fever be beneficial? Why do pregnant women get morning sickness? How do certain viruses "manipulate" their hosts into infecting others? What evolutionary factors may be responsible for depression and panic disor der? Deftly summarizing research on disorders ranging from allergies to Alzheimer's, and form cancer to Huntington's chorea, Why We Get Sick, answers these questions and more. The result is a book that will revolutionize our attitudes toward illness and will intrigue and instruct lay person and medical practitioners alike.
