If races were different orders of the species, we wouldn't be so
infinitely miscible, genetically, but breed monsters like tiglons,

I also recommend a recent book by my colleague, Professor Alain Corcos,
who makes the comparable point. The book deserves wider circulation
than it has perhaps received to date.
