'...a useful text for aquiring a solid grounding in behavioural genetics...the figures are excellent providing a clear accompaniment to the text' Human Psychopharmacology Human Genetics for the Social Sciences introduces psychology and other social science students to the role genetics play in the individual differences in human behaviour. There is a growing awareness of the importance of this role, yet many behavioural scientists have little background in even basic biology, much less training in genetics. Many psychologists and psychology students lack the background to learn about human genetics through traditional texts written for biologists, medical students and geneticists. This broad-based text meets the need to explain genetics to this audience in a non-technical, introductory fashion deliberately focussing on the 'big' picture of genetics.
