In this volume Anthony Walsh bridges the divide separating sociology from biology, arguing that sociology has nothing to fear and a wealth of riches to gain if it pays attention to the theories, concepts, and methodologies of the biological sciences. He introduces relevant concepts from genetics and the neurosciences and applies his arguments to traditional substantive sociological issues such as culture, crime, gender, socialization, social class, and the family. This book will be essential to all interested in the history of this important divide between the fields and where it currently stands.
