Summary
Considers the alignment of genetic science with commercial genealogy, with legal and forensic developments, and with pharmaceutical innovation to examine how these trends lend renewed authority to biological understandings of race and history. Various contributors explore the emerging and often contested connections among race, DNA, and history. From publisher description
