Inside Higher Ed interviews William H. Tucker

This morning’s Inside Higher Ed features an interview with William H. Tucker, author of the new book The Cattell Controversy: Race, Science, and Ideology.

Q: What attracted you to this topic for your book?

A: My research has focused on the misuse of science to support oppressive social policies, and Cattell’s work is a clear and interesting example of this phenomenon. But there is also a personal dimension to the book. When Cattell was named the 1997 recipient of the Gold Medal Award for Life Achievement in Psychological Science, I was one of a handful of persons who wrote to American Psychological Association to express concern over the choice.
