The traditional concept of race as a biological fact is a myth, says evolutionary biologist Graves (Fairleigh Dickinson U.), and he sets out to demonstrate that nearly everything people, even non-racists, think about race is a social construct. Sex, of course, must be the first facet of the myth to be addressed; then in turn health, sports, and intelligence. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
