How the Jews Got Their Smarts (and Other Adventures in Biohistory)

While computational geneticists live in a world dominated by bytes, The 10,000 Year Explosion synthesizes seemingly disparate fields so as to generate a narrative of more insight than each part alone. With the long exile of biology from the human sciences there are many weeds to clear out, but the fallow period has left the soil fertile. The 10,000 Year Explosion starts with a set of facts derived from traditional historical disciplines, narrative history to paleoanthropology, and integrates them into a solid base of theoretical models supported by decades of research in animal breeding and population genetics, and finally sifts the resulting hybrid models through the filter of genomics. After converging upon a few likely probabilities they begin to turn the cranks on the machine to generate inferences and plausibilities in the hypothetico-deductive tradition of science.
