Are our personalities and capabilities predetermined by our genes? Human Diversity answers that question with a resounding 'No'. Using tools of population genetics, Richard Lewontin makes the case that biological differences are only a small part of what makes individuals unique-anyone, regardless of race, class or sex, has the potential to develop virtually any identity within the spectrum of humanity.

The book deals with reasons for genetic human diversity. Dry as hell, but he's thorough.
