Reviews

"[This] is a fresh and deep contribution to the sociobiology of humans, combining genetics with social science in original ways."--Edward O. Wilson, Harvard University "The book greatly expands Hamiltonian AEkin selection by making ethnies in control of territory the central arena of AEselfish genery in a modern world of mass migration."--Pierre van den Berghe, University of Washington, Seattle "Salter argues that all humans have a vital interest in genetic continuity that is threatened by mass migration. Salter advocates non-aggressive AEuniversal nationalism as part of a balanced AEfitness portfolio that includes investments in three levels of genetic interests--family, ethny, and the species as a whole. The synthesis is persuasive; the policy formulations provocative."--IrenOus Eibl-Eibesfeldt, Max Planck Society "Five stars for Salter--he has provided us with a deep and compelling explanation of what most people know and what guides much of their behavior, but fear to acknowledge publicly."--Michael T. McGuire, UCLA "We are indeed all part of each other, as John Donne insisted even before the help of evolutionary genetics. But we are more part of some than others, and the nature of these boundaries of ethnic kinship has been ignored, avoided or denied. After Salters virtuoso synthesis we can no longer duck these issues which become more important daily."--Robin Fox, Rutgers University
