An increasing number of us are marrying partners with similar education levels as ourselves, but genetically speaking, humans are mixing it up more than ever before with respect to mating and reproduction.

Produktbeschreibung
The Genome Factor reveals that there are real genetic differences by racial ancestry - but ones that dont conform to what we call black, white, or Latino. Genes explain a significant share of who gets ahead in society and who does not, but instead of giving rise to a genotocracy, genes often act as engines of mobility that counter social disadvantage. An increasing number of us are marrying partners with similar education levels as ourselves, but genetically speaking, humans are mixing it up more than ever before with respect to mating and reproduction. These are just a few of the many findings presented in this illuminating and entertaining book, which also tackles controversial topics such as genetically personalized education and the future of reproduction in a world where more and more of us are taking advantage of cheap genotyping services like 23andMe to find out what our genes may hold in store for ourselves and our children.

Rezensionen
"Sophisticated, imaginative, and intellectually first-rate. I know of no other book that so accessibly pulls together such a vast array of complex material at the intersection of genetics and the social sciences."--Michael J. Shanahan, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
