"The Invisible History Of The Human Race"

Penguin Books

A debate is always possible when someone insists either of themselves or the human race "it's just my nature." 

But… it's a debate because it is still not settled. 

How much of what humans do is determined by genetics, and how much by culture--or something else? 

Journalist Christine Kenneally dives into this very deep pool in her book "The Invisible History of the Human Race: How DNA and History Shape Our Identities and Our Futures." 

She pays a visit to talk about her concepts.
