Edited By Witkowski, Jan A. And Inglis, John R.
When Charles Davenport published Heredity in Relation to Eugenics in 1911, he advanced his ideas of where genetics would go in the rest of the 20th century. In this volume, a group of prominent scientists take some of Davenport's themes-mental illness, human evolution, nature and nurture-and discuss them in a 21st century context. Davenport's original book is reprinted along with the essays. Contents: Complete facsimile reprint of Heredity in Relation to Eugenics by Charles Davenport; Additional Essays: Preface (Matt Ridley); Davenport Biography (Jan Witkowski); Davenport' s Eugenics (Elof Carlson); Human Variation/Evolution/Founder Effects (Douglas Wallace); Psychiatric Disorders (Daniel Weinberger and David Goldman); Behavioral Disorders (Lindsey Kent and Simon Baron Cohen); Using Genetics (Philip Reilly); Insights from the Human Genome: Genes and Variation (Maynard Olson); Genetics and Equality (Ronald Dworkin); Genetics and Human Nature (Lewis Wolpert).298pp.

Falk, Richard A.
In his clear-sighted, humane, and provocative way, Richard Falk calls for a revolution in thinking about the future of world order. "Explorations at the Edge of Time" develops the idea that a major cultural shift from modernism to post modernism is under way, creating both new difficulties and new opportunities in the domain of global public policy. The author observes, 'A post modem possibility implies the human capacity to transcend the violence, poverty, ecological decay, oppression, injustice, and secularism of the modern world'. Recognizing that the concepts of 'progress' and 'development' have changed due to the breakdown of the modernist consensus, Falk contends that most problems have transnational dimensions. He proposes a commitment to grassroots globalism, and he challenges aspiring 'citizen pilgrims' to think and act in ways that will enhance their feeling of identity with the rest of creation. Falk's 'rooted utopianism' challenges our political imagination in relation to pressing global problems and helps forge an overall vision of the future. What is at stake is the building of political understanding amidst the appreciation of unity and diversity for a hopeful entry upon the 21st Century. N.B. Some pencil annotations. Head and tail of spine and corners of boards slightly bumped. Slight mark to ffep. 255pp.
