From the Publisher
"Robert Hayman writes passionately and sensitively about our attitudes toward intelligence and how those attitudes shape the conditions of social equality in this country. . . . Intelligence is one area where Americans have remained relatively complacent about outmoded stereotypes and caste-like social structures. With this book, perhaps they will be no longer."
-J. M. Balkin,Lafayette S. Foster Professor, Yale Law School
"A passionate attack on pervasive American cultural assumptions of natural inequality. The book provides a fine history of antiblack discrimination and of the racist and nativist bases of the developers of standardized intelligence tests."
"A painstakingly researched, scientific, psychological, sociocultural, and constitutional history of race, Smart Culture is one of our generation's most powerful indictments of insidious racism and meritocracies."
