Biology can inform public policy in a number of ways. This volume explores the linkage of the life sciences with policy (what the book refers to as biopolicy). It features two points of departure: the implications of the neurosciences for public policy; and the implications of evolutionary theory for policy-making.

The first part of the book provides an introduction to the subject of biopolicy as well as the relevance of the brain sciences and evolutionary theory for this subject. The second part considers several case studies of how these points of departure inform our knowledge of policy. Among case studies provided here are the implications for distribution of wealth, the roots of foreign policy, violent behavior, policy decision-making, and the like. In the final analysis, this book provides examples of how the life sciences can inform public policy choices.

Research in Biopolitics is the only book series that focuses specifically on the relationship between biology and politics, and provides contemporary research for practitioners, including anthropologists, sociologists, economists, biopolitical researchers, as well as students of law and political science.

About the Author:

Review:

This volume explores recent developments in the juncture between the life sciences and public policy (or biopolicy), focusing primarily on how findings from evolutionary theory and the neurosciences can inform us both in terms of evidence of certain policy discussions and in terms of understanding the behavior of policy makers. Editors Somit (emeritus, Southern Illinois U.) and Peterson (Pennsylvania State U. School of Public Affairs) present ten papers, which explore such topics as evolution, IQ, and wealth; evolution and foreign policy decision-making models; neurotoxicity and violent crime; the intersection of individual physiology, psychology, and institutional policy behaviors; leadership and economics from a behaviorist perspective; and the politics of cognitive freedom. --Book News Inc.
