New Book by ex-Nature Editor Explores Relationships Between Genes and Culture- TERA

Frankly, it may well be that A Troublesome Inheritance is most useful as an illustration of the gap between the popular understanding of racism and the reality of how it operates. Wade very clearly does not consider himself, or his conclusions, to be racist, writing that “no one has the right or reason to assert superiority over a person of a different race.” Yet this book is ultimately racist, because it does exactly that.
