Commentary on J. Philippe Rushton's Race, Evolution, and Behavior "(An) incendiary thesis .... that separate races of human beings evolved different reproductive strategies to cope with different environments and that these strategies led to physical differences in brain size and bence in intelligence. Human beings who evolved in the warm but highly unpredictable environment of Africa adopted a strategy of high reproduction, while human beings who migrated to the hostile cold of Europe and northern Asia took to producing fewer children but nurturing them more carefully." -Malcolm W. Browne, New York Times Book Review "Rush ton is a serious scholar who has assembled serious data. Consider just one example: brain size. The empirical reality, verified by numero us modern studies, including several based on magnetic resonance imaging, is that a significant and substantial relationship does exist between brain size and measured intelligence after body size is taken into account and that the races do have different distributions of brain size." -Charles Murray, Afterword to The Bell Curve "Describes hundreds of studies worldwide that show a consistent pattern of human racial differences in such characteristics as intelligence, brain size, genital size, strength of sex drive, reproductive potency, industriousness, sociability, and rule following. On each of these variables, the groups are aligned in the order: Orientais, Caucasians, Blacks." -Mark Snyderman, National Review "Rushton's Race, Evolution, and Behavior, which is about race differences in IQ and cranial capacity, is an attempt to understand these differences in terms of life-history evolution .... Perhaps there ultimately will be sorne serious contribution from the traditional smoke-and-mirrors social science treatment of IQ, but for now Rushton's framework is essentially the only game in town." - Henry Harpending, Evolutionary Anthropology ...
