Summary
"The notion that intelligence is somehow related to race is a notoriously tenacious one in America. Anthropologist Alexander Alland provides the most comprehensive overview of the recent history of research on race and IQ, offering critiques of the biological determinism of Carlton Coon, Arthur Jensen, Cyril Burt, Robert Ardrey, Konrad Lorenz, William Shockley, Michael Levin, Leonard Jeffries, Richard Herrnstein and Charles Murray, J.P. Rushton, and H.J. Eysenck. This reasoned, authoritative history also explains the basis of evolutionary genetics for the general reader, concluding that biologically, "race" cannot explain human variation. Written in a lively, conversational style, Alland imparts real, substantive scientific arguments and cuts through the ideological posturing and jargon that so often characterize our discussions about race, showing us a more nuanced and scientifically valid way to understand the diversity that is the human condition."--Jacket
