๐Ÿ“™ Political Biology: Science and Social Values in Human Heredity from Eugenics to Epigenetics by Maurizio Meloni (auth.) โ€” pdf free


This book explores the socio-political implications of human heredity from the second half of the nineteenth century to the present postgenomic moment. It discusses eugenics, the modern synthesis, and epigenetics. Meloni argues that thanks to findings in epigenetics we may be witnessing a return to 'soft heredity'.
