The pre-holiday flurry of new publications includes one we'd recommend for the holidays:

*Who is a Jew? Can DNA shed light on the shared legacy of the Israelites? Is intelligence innate? Is there evidence that Jews are smarter than other groups? Jon Entine tackles these and other questions in "Abraham's Children: Race, Identity, and the DNA of the Chosen People" (Grand Central Publishing, $27.99). Just out October 24, this book is bound to attract lots of attention. Kirkus Reviews called it "engaging and informative reading for Jews and non-Jews alike."
