This review is from: Are We Born Racist?: New Insights from Neuroscience and Positive Psychology (Paperback)
As a long-time student of both neuro-science and D&I, I found this to be just the right mix of hard science and research to compliment more traditional texts on inclusion. While it in no way let us "off the hook" for prejudiced behaviors, it does remove the guilt often experienced when people first come to terms with their own primal instincts to discriminate. More importantly the authors challenge us to intentionally engage others from whom who are different (nicely referencing studies on "contact hypothesis") so that we can re-educate the neo-cortex portion of our brains and reprogram our responses. Nicely written!
