Before we say to much about Rushton's pt. 5 here, it may be interesting to
look at the latest issue of The New Republic. Charles Murray is a regular
contributor to that magazine and his book is the topic of the entire issue.
The entire editorial staff makes signed comments (most less than a page)
about the book, Murray's methods and intentions, about race and the public
policy decisions made in connection to it. It is well worth reading.
