"This is an exceedingly original, interesting, and very important work for anthropology. Its major strength is its conceptual sophistication and the potential to make a substantial, groundbreaking contribution in anthropology, science studies, and global health. This is bio-cultural anthropology at its best." - Jonathan Marks, Department of Anthropology, UNC-Charlotte"For those working in the field of medical/population genetics and bioethics in Brazil, this book is more than welcome. It raises sensitive issues daily present in our South American population, namely, the question of genetic admixture, its consequences for social and political life, and implications for health." - Lavinia Schuler-Faccini, Genetics Department, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil and Jose Roberto Goldim, head of the Bioethics Division at the Hospital de Clinicas, Porto Alegre, Brasil
The edited collection brings together social and biological anthropology scholars, biologists, and geneticists to examine the interface between Genetic Admixture, Identity and Health
