What it Means to be 98% Chimpanzee by Jonathan Marks
Book DescriptionMarks presents the field of molecular anthropology - a synthesis of the holistic approach of anthropology with the reductive approach of molecular genetics - as a way of improving our understanding of the science of human evolution. This iconoclastic, witty, and extremely readable book illuminates the deep background of our place in nature and asks us to think critically about what science is, and what passes for it, in modern society.

Is Science Racist?, Hardback (February 2017)
Every arena of science has its own set of ethical issues chemistry and poison gas, physics and the atom bomb and genetics has had a troubled history with race. As Jonathan Marks reveals, this dangerous relationship rumbles on to this day, still leaving plenty of leeway for a belief in the basic natural inequality of races.
