Lieberman, Leonard and Rice, Patricia. 1996.
This teaching module demonstrates that characteristics conventionally used to identify biological races (e.g. skin color) do not support the concept of race as a valid scientific biological category because the traits do not covary. Included is a set of maps to show the lack of co-variation of supposed "racial" characteristics. This module can be used in conjunction with another module, "Race 1997 and 2001".
