This review of the discoveries of the Evolution of Human genetics well sums up what is known at this early stage of analyzing DNA in our genome. Some areas of the world are under represented (Finland, Iceland, East Asia, Native Americans and probably some others that I don't know about. I was searching for information on Native American movement. My impression is that really it has not been fully discovered. But this book is full of a lot of other information about human genetics around the world.

"[This] landmark global study flattens The Bell Curve, proving that racial differences are only skin deep.... The History and Geography of Human Genes is.... The book's firm conclusion.... there is 'no scientific basis' for theories touting the genetic superiority of any one population over another." - Time

This is a very interesting review by Time magazine. Notice that Time says The Bell Curve shows that race differences are more than skin deep. In reality, The Bell Curve doesn't say this at all! In fact, The Bell Curve shows that races overlap considerably. The Bell Curve is merely a statistical study of differences in behavior between races concerning; graduation rates, illegitimacy, average age, poverty rate, and IQ scores which all overlap between races.

Not only that but the book The History and Geography of Human Genes discusses literally no topics discussed in The Bell Curve. They are about completely different topics.

This whole Time review reads to me, as a illogical attempt to discredit a breakthrough book- The Bell Curve. I wonder why somebody would do this?

I highly recommend both The Bell Curve and The History and Geography of Human Genes- both are landmark books in completely different fields. Also I would recommend the book The 10,000 Year Explosion for a more up to date view of recent human evolution.
