NYT rejected an Op-Ed on David Reich's essay by 50 scientists (a letter to the editor (~125 words) might make it in). NYT again refuses to give anthropology a voice despite the fact that we generated much of the data and conducted many of the studies Reich cites.

I’ve got a long review of Harvard geneticist David Reich’s new book on ancient DNA, Who We Are and How We Got Here, coming out pretty soon, probably Wednesday in Taki’s Magazine. My theme is how this 2010s wave of genome studies of old skeletons has demolished much of the conventional wisdom promoted by post-Boasian anthropologists.
The anthropologists, such as Agustín Fuentes, are not happy with Reich.
