Summary

Are we entirely at the mercy of our chromosomes? In Are We Hardwired? Scientists William R. Clark and Michael Grunstein say the answer is both yes and no. Clark and Grunstein take us on a tour of modern genetics and behavioral science, revealing that few elements of behavior depend upon a single gene: complexes of genes, often across chromosomes, drive most of our heredity-based actions. To illustrate this point, they examine the genetic basis, and quirks, of individual behavioral traits - including aggression, sexuality, mental function, eating disorders, alcoholism, and drug abuse. They show that genes and environment are not opposing forces.
