"The Bell Curve" and Its Critical Progeny: A Review.
Davis, Alan
Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, v2 n2 p183-89 1997
Discusses R. Herrnstein's and C. Murray's attempt to persuade an educated white readership that they, the readers, are genetically, socially, and intellectually superior. The most effective criticisms are those that rely on scientific evidence about the manipulation of data and flawed analyses rather than the display of moral outrage. (SLD)
