Bellow, former editorial director of the Free Press, examines the stigmatized practice of nepotism, the favored treatment of one's relatives. Drawing on insights of modern evolutionary theory, he shows how nepotism is rooted in our biological nature, and surveys the natural history of nepotism from its practice in ancient societies to the present American experience, looking at famous families including the Rothschilds, the Roosevelts, and the Bushes.
