Book Discussion

A Troublesome Inheritance, by longtime New York Times science writer Nicholas Wade, was released in late spring to great fanfare. It argues that modern genetic science reveals “three major races” that are genetically distinct and diverge much as subspecies do. These genetic differences, it contends, underlie “the rise of the West.” According to Wade, in other words, race is the biologically real result of Darwinian natural selection.

A Troublesome Inheritance has received extremely critical responses, nearly across the board, including a negative account in The New York Times. In a striking act of solidarity, 143 population geneticists wrote a lettercondemning Wade’s interpretation of their work. Biopolitical Times contributor Pete Shanks has written about the book’s reception here and here. But Wade remains adamant that everyone who disagrees with him is simply too intimated by “political correctness” to say what they really think.

Brubaker R (2011) “Nationalizing states revisited: projects and processes of nationalization in post-Soviet states” – Ethnic and Racial Studies

ABSTRACT: “This paper analyses Estonia, Latvia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan as nationalizing states, focusing on four domains: ethnopolitical demography, language repertoires and practices, the polity and the economy. Nationalizing discourse has figured centrally in these and other ‘post-multinational’ contexts. But nationalizing projects and processes have differed substantially across cases. Where ethnonational boundaries have been strong, quasi-racial and intergenerationally persistent, as in Kazakhstan, nationalization (notwithstanding inclusive official rhetoric) has served primarily to strengthen and empower the core nation. Where ethnonational and linguistic boundaries have been blurred and permeable, as in Ukraine, nationalization has worked primarily to reshape cultural practices, loyalties and identities, thereby in effect redefining and enlarging the core nation. Where boundaries have been strong, yet show signs of being intergenerationally permeable, as in Estonia and Latvia, nationalization was initially oriented towards protecting, strengthening, and empowering the core nation as a sharply bounded collectivity, but has subsequently become more assimilationist and culturalist.”

  •  Read a critical review by K. Joyce – natives, racist propaganda? Excerpt: “…Above an ominous, skeletal piano score, telegraphing a claustrophobic sense of impending doom, an assembly of prominent conservative researchers and pundits, including Nobel laureate Gary Becker and academics from conservative think-tanks, ruefully predicts a new end-of-days. Everywhere throughout the film, there is a plague of disappearing bodies, particularly children’s bodies, literally vanishing from the screen…” Read more.
