Fatal Invention: How Science, Politics, and Big Business Re-create Race in the Twenty-first Century

This book is about Dorothy Roberts
In "Fatal Invention: How Science, Politics, and Big Business Re-create Race in the Twenty-first Century," legal scholar Dorothy Roberts delivers a profound critique of the contemporary scientific and commercial efforts to reinstate race as a biological category, despite widespread genetic evidence to the contrary. Published on September 1, 2012, this thought-provoking book explores how personalized medicine, reproductive technologies, and DNA databanks have all played a role in perpetuating a racial divide under the guise of advanced science. Roberts compellingly argues that these practices not only fuel inequality but also undermine societal progress towards racial justice. Hailed as one of the ten best black nonfiction books of 2011 by AFRO.com, "Fatal Invention" is an essential read for those in adult education programs, providing a critical examination of race, science, and politics. This book challenges readers to question the links between science and racial identity and to consider the real-world implications of these associations on a supposedly "post-racial" society.
