Summary

In this major new book, eminent scientist Professor Sir Michael Rutter gets behind the hype of the behavioral genetics debate to provide a balanced and authoritative overview of the genetic revolution and its implications for understanding human behavior.

  • Written by one of the world's leading figures in child psychology and psychiatry, Professor Sir Michael Rutter.
  • Provides non-technical explanation of genetics to diffuse the sensational debates surrounding the topic.
  • Sets out in layman's terms what genes do, how much is nature and how much is nurture.
  • Argues that nature and nurture are not truly separate and gives examples of how the two interact.
  • Looks at the implications of genetic findings for policy and practice.
  • The book will inform public debate about the implications of the Human Genome Project and, more broadly, the field of genetic science.
