Modern science is pivotal in our understanding of race - not because of the lines that thinkers through the centuries have chosen to trace, but because, once grouped, what they thought belonging to these groups signified.

In this book, award-winning science writer Angela Saini explores the concept of race, both past and present.

At its heart, race is the belief that we are born different, in character and intellectually, as well as in appearance.

It's the notion that as groups of people we have certain innate qualities that are not only visible, but which may also have helped define the passage of progress, of the success and failure of the nations our ancestors came from.
