Drawing on recent scientific research, he reveals stunning differences between athletes of Western African heritage and those from East Africa, and explains why the favored explanation for black dominance, a dearth of opportunities, fails to explain the dimensions of black athletic superiority. He tells the story of blacks in sports, and discusses circumstance that have made addressing the facts so controversial. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
