What "The Bell Curve" Says and Doesn't Say: Is a Balanced View Possible?
Rogers, Karen B.
Roeper Review, v18 n4 p252-55 Jun 1996
This article summarizes the thesis of "The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life," noting its rejection of educational intervention to solve social problems correlated to low IQ. It critiques the book for its failure to consider important research findings, and addresses the race issue, urging that the book's message not be overgeneralized. (DB)
