Genes and Behavior by Sir Michael Rutter
Book DescriptionIn this major new book, eminent scientist Professor Sir Michael Rutter gets behind the hype of the behavioral genetics debate to provide a balanced and authoritative overview of the genetic revolution and its implications for understanding human behavior. * Written by one of the world's leading figures in child psychology and psychiatry, Professor Sir Michael Rutter * Provides non-technical explanation of genetics to diffuse the sensational debates surrounding the topic * Sets out in layman's terms what genes do, how much is nature and how much is nurture * Argues that nature and nurture are not truly separate and gives examples of how the two interact * Looks at the implications of genetic findings for policy and practice * The book will inform public debate about the implications of the Human Genome Project and, more broadly, the field of genetic science
