Dobzhansky, T. Heredity and the nature of man
Theodosius Dobzhansky. Heredity and the Nature of Man
After a very clear and concise introduction to the basic facts of genetics, the book deals with topics which are of importance to the physical, mental, and social well-being of man: the heredity-environment problem, the nature of race, the genetic load of man, genetic radiation hazards, the evolutionary history and future of man.
The author is well aware of the deep ethical questions which are involved if one applies scientific knowledge to man. The emphasis given to the moral implications of the questions discussed is the most striking characteristic of the book.
