Evil Genes, Book Review by Brian Wright

Evil Genes, Book Review by Brian Wright

Published by Brian Wright
Oakley leads with the question of the book: Do genes have a role in the "successfully sinister" members of our society, and if so, what is the nature of that genetic pull? She discusses recent developments in psychological assessment, some standard personality-type mapping documentation known as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, now in its fourth revision (DSM-IV). From what I can gather, the psychologists use the term "Machiavellianism" and most "personality disorders" if not synonymously at least as all indicative of psychological characteristics in an individual that are bad news for the general public.
