A wonderful antidote to the gene hysteria that is now so dominant What is most exciting about this book is the authors ability to move seamlessly from research on how the brain works, to sociology, history, and philosophy And that, I believe, is exactly how we need to understand gender neither nature nor nurture, but a complex interplay Dr Lynda Birke, auth A wonderful antidote to the gene hysteria that is now so dominant What is most exciting about this book is the authors ability to move seamlessly from research on how the brain works, to sociology, history, and philosophy And that, I believe, is exactly how we need to understand gender neither nature nor nurture, but a complex interplay Dr Lynda Birke, author of Feminism and the Biological BodyThis work moves beyond the old nature nurture debate concerning what makes us who we are to present a new understanding of gender and sexuality Since the mapping of the human genome there has been widespread coverage of scientific discoveries in the offing, and of the host of human problems to be solved through gene therapy, from physical defects to mental disease and even so called undesirable behavior As biologists with expertise in neuroscience, ethology, psychology, sociology and human ethos, Kaplan and Rogers are uniquely situated to evaluate the claims of their colleagues concerning the knowledge to be gained through the study of our biological make up They caution against the seductive belief that, once we understand our biological constitution, it is but a short step to complete mastery of human nature Further, they show that this belief is yet another example of how science can be subverted to defend the claims of the ruling ideology.

    If I could place a negative in front of the number fo stars, I'd give this a -10. Aside from the author's dubious degrees, there's no evidence anywhere that they've taken a science class of any kind. From blatant errors regarding genetics that even my freshman biology class full of non-science majors could spot, to a flawed understanding of the basics of the scientific method, it's obvious from the first page the authors have an anti-science agenda to push. I tried my best to get past the first [...]

    It is a good book which deals with current concepts of genetics and the common misconceptions associated with this new field of knowledge when it comes to gender and sex.In many instances it was a thought provoking book with radical and sceptical ideas questioning conclusions common among current biologists and scientists. It is certainly worth the effort and time.
