About this book

18th-century natural historians created a peculiar but durable vision of nature, embodying the sexual and racial tensions of that era. Plants were found to reproduce sexually, and great apes were just becoming known. This text uncovers the ways in which assumptions about sex, and race have shaped scientific explanations of nature.

Media reviews
Schiebinger lays bare the cultural narratives that mix so easily with science. They are at the same time hilarious and eerie, silly and profoundly disturbing. Schiebinger is brilliant in showing how tales of gender and race are told in other guises.-Thomas Laqueur, author of Making Sex: Body and Gender from the Greeks to Freud; "Wonderfully humorous.... Indispensable for all anthropologists, historians, philosophers, and practitioners of science."-Emily Martin, author of The Woman in the Body"
