Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(7), 571. Reviews the book, Human Variation: The Biopsychology of Age, Race, and Sex by R. Travis Osborne, Clyde E. Noble, and Nathaniel Weyl (Eds.) (1978). This book is concerned with human variation, not human uniformity. And as its subtitle suggests, it is the biological, not the cultural and experiential determinants of behavior that provide its primary focus. In the spectrum of recent books dealing with race and sex differences, this one, while its chapters vary, on the whole falls clearly toward the hereditary side.
