Heritability estimates versus large environmental effects: the IQ paradox resolved.

Searching for justice: The discovery of IQ gains over time.
Humane-egalitarian ideals, whose aims are group justice and reducing environmental inequality and privilege, must be tested against reality, as revealed by psychology and other social sciences. Four
"Massive IQ gains in 14 nations: What IQ tests really measure": Correction to Flynn.
