By: Richard Lewontin
175 pages, B/w photos, illus, maps
Lewontin explores the complexity of human variation and tackles the controversial question: Are our personalities and capabilities predetermined by our genes? Answering with a resounding `no', Human Diversity makes the case that biological differences are only a small part of what makes individuals unique - anyone, regardless of race, class, sex, has the potential to develop any identity within the spectrum of humanity.
`A compelling text for lay readers who wish to rise above the level of the `gene machine,' to which much scientific journalism on the sociobiological debate has descended' - New Scientist.
