Many of the battles of the civil rights movement have been fought and won, but the world is still far from colorblind. Mixed marriages are increasing but still remain largely taboo. Although interracial relationships are often discussed, the focus is almost exclusively on the negative elements. Those against mixing list the negative consequences as warnings. Even those who support interracial
marriage speak of the prejudice that the couple and their children sometimes face. Breeding Between The Lines is the first book to outline the significant genetic and physical advantages these people possess.
This book combines sex, race, health and genetics in a daring new theory. Written with accessible, direct prose, anecdotes, analogies, and examples from human and animal studies, it is sure to be a subject of debate.
