There's an interesting opinion piece at Nature by Aravinda Chakravarti. The part on populations and race covers some pretty familiar ground, but the article is obviously aimed at a more general audience. I'm not really sure what the "population view dominates in genetics" means. I think geneticists use population labels as handy identifiers, which can sometimes lead to some confusing/misleading statements, but I think the majority think that most genetic variation is relatively smoothly distributed (though perhaps I know a biased subset of geneticists). The debate rather is in what forces that have shaped this smoothness and how to interpret deviations.
