About the Authors
  • This book penetrates the thicket of controversy, ideology and prejudice surrounding the measurement of intelligence to provide a clear non-mathematical analysis of it. The testing of intelligence has a long and controversial history and whether intelligence exists and can be measured still remains unresolved. The debate about it has centered on the "nurture versus nature" controversy and especially on alleged racial differences and the heritability of intelligence.

    • Deals with controversial subjects of the heritability of intelligence and with racial and other group differences
    • Eschews ideology and aims to give a clear, fair and objective treatment
    • Critically reviews the controversy which followed the publication of The Bell Curve, and deals in particular with Stephen Jay Gould's criticisms in the 2nd edition of his The Mismeasure of Man
