I'm undoubtedly European, as I'm a combo of mixed European lineage and Ashkenazi Jew.
Coon carefully makes the point that modern Jews are essentially European with tinges of Semite.
I think it's an impressive book; that most people have no idea it exists because of one word in the title is really dense.
From what I hear from modern genetics research, the conclusion is quite opposite: Jews are Semite with tinges of European.
I don't know whom to believe as science these days is very much for sale for the highest bidder, and what we get from the past has its own un-science-y bias.
Why did modern research reject Coon's findings anyway? Can somebody please illuminate this issue?
From what I remember he was claiming something about race mixing with the Neanderthals.
