Born Together — Reared Apart is a history of the Minnesota Study of Twins Reared Apart, which provides the scientifically soundest evidence of the reality and extent of genetic determinism — as well as many astonishing stories.

2. “The Psychology of White Dispossession”: Jared Taylor reviews Barbara Oakley, et al., Pathological Altruism [4] (New York: Oxford University Press, 2012), 465 pp., $55.00: http://www.amren.com/features/2012/07/pathological-altruism/ [5]

Pathological Altruism is a collection of sociobiological and evolutionary psychological studies of how altruism can become maladaptive. Although these studies do not cover self-destructive white racial altruism, Jared Taylor explains how they throw a good deal of light on the problem.
