Over at the excellent anthropology blog Savage Minds, Kerim has a nice post summarizing the recent blogospheric debate about the book The Bell Curve. The post also has links to other online resources relevant to the debate.

Bottomline: in spite of so much of scholarly debunking ('fisking' seems to be the preferred word these days) over the years, this book seems to have a great staying power in the minds of right wingers, who never fail to get pounced on (as this current episode shows, for the umpteenth time) every time they praise the book in a discussion on IQ.
