No stranger to intellectual combat, Dyson has always been ready to engage friends and foes alike in open conversation about the issues that matter.Debating Racecollects many of Dyson's most memorable encounters and most poignant arguments.

Simpson trial, and the authenticity of Colin Powell there is something inDebating Raceto touch a nerve in all of us.
