How to Argue With a Racist: An Evening with Adam Rutherford (Gower Street) Wednesday 5th February 18:30 at London - Gower Street How to Argue With a Racist: History, Science, Race and Reality (Hardback) How to Argue... Adam Rutherford Race is real because we perceive it. Racism is real because we enact it. Neither race nor racism has foundation in science. But the appeal to science to strengthen racist ideologies is on the rise - and increasingly part of the public discourse on politics, migration, education, sport and intelligence - Adam Rutherford We are delighted to welcome Adam Rutherford, science writer and broadcaster, to celebrate the publication of his new book How to Argue With a Racist. A vital manifesto for a twenty-first century understanding of human evolution and variation, this is a timely weapon against the misuse of science to justify bigotry. A clear-headed and intelligent denunciation of racist stereotypes and pernicious eugenics, this masterly account of genetics and its dangerous misuse through history contains all you ever need to refute hateful claims about racial superiority. A local and much-loved name, Adam Rutherford studied genetics at University College London and during his PhD on the developing eye, was part of a team that identified the first genetic cause of a form of childhood blindness. He has written and presented many award-winning series and programmes for the BBC. Tickets are £10 General Admission / £8 Students & Plus Card Holders, or £20 including a discounted copy of the book. All tickets include a glass of wine or soft drink.
