The Meaning of Race
The term race has many levels of meaning, scientific, administrative, and popular. The meanings are so diverse, even contradictory, that some authors believe the word ought not to be used. While sharing their discomfort over the confusions and distortions, we believe the word is unlikely to disappear from general usage and that therefore it is better to examine it carefully than to disregard it.
