Not In Our Genes
Biology, Ideology, and Human Nature
Three eminent scientists analyze the scientific, social, and political roots of biological determinism.

Informative, entertaining, lucid, forceful, frequently witty . . . never dull . . . should be read and remembered for a long time."—New York Times Book Review

"The authors argue persuasively that biological explanations for why we act as we do are based on faulty (in some cases, fabricated) data and wild speculation. . . . It is debunking at its best."—Psychology Today

"An important and timely book"—Stephen Jay Gould

Not in our Genes systematically exposes and dismantles the claims that inequalities—class, race, gender—are the products of biological, genetic inheritances.
