Not in Our Genes: Biology, Ideology, and Human Nature Cover Image


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.
