The IQ Argument. Race, Intelligence and Education.
Eysenck, Hans J.
The controversy over the causes of intelligence--genetic or environmental--is reviewed. More specifically, the subject of the consistently lower intelligence scores for blacks is analyzed. Much attention is devoted to Jensen and his monograph published in the "Harvard Educational Review," entitled "How much can we boost IQ and scholastic achievement?" Race, intelligence, and the social responsibility of science are among the topics discussed. (Author)
