As the first booklength account of the Fund, it is invaluable... -- Ian Dowbiggin, University of Prince Edward Island, Canada Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences There is no doubt, however, that with relatively small assets the Pioneer Fund has had a substantial impact in changing the face of social science in the latter part of the 20th century. Both Richard Lynn and Harry Weyher are to be commended for telling the story of the Pioneer Fund's record of accomplishment and the fund itself for the research it has bravely supported.

Reseña del editor:

In The Science of Human Diversity, Richard Lynn gives an account of the research sponsored by the Pioneer Fund of New York. The Fund was established in 1937 by the textile millionaire Wickliffe Draper to support research in genetics, heredity and eugenics. Since its foundation, the Fund has sponsored much of the most significant research on genetic contributions to intelligence and personality. The work supported by the Fund has been on both the individual and race differences. The Fund has frequently been attacked for supporting work regarded as controversial. In this book, Lynn sets the record straight by providing a history of the individuals supported by the Fund and their work.
