Thinking about Parent and Child [Book Review].
Wilson, James Q.
Public Interest, n135 p18-29 Spr 1999
The controversy about the relative importance of heredity and environment and the role of parents in children's behavior explored by Harris is not new. Although her book offers no new policy guidance, it does offer some useful academic suggestions by clarifying the plentiful scientific evidence of the importance of genetics in behavior. (SLD)
