In 1922 the Society published the Twenty-First Yearbook, entitled "Intelligence Tests and Their Use", and in 1928, the Twenty-Seventh Yearbook, entitled "Nature and Nurture"; Part I, "Their Influence upon Intelligence," and Part II, "Their Influence upon Achievement". In other yearbooks, as, for example, those dealing with "The Measurement of Educational Products", "The Education of Gifted Children", "Adapting the Schools to Individual Differences", "Educational Diagnosis", "The Grouping of Pupils", and "Child Development and the Curriculum", more or less extensive discussion is to be found concerning the nature and use of tests of intelligence and concerning the relative contributions of heredity and of environment to the making of adult mentality. On these accounts, accordingly, the present yearbook is not a first excursion for this Society into a terra incognita, however obscure the terrain and its boundaries may appear to remain after the current volume has been exhaustively inspected for guidance. More particularly this Thirty-Ninth Yearbook is to be regarded as sequential to the Twenty-Seventh Yearbook. This volume contains a clear statement of the social implications of our present knowledge of nature and nurture, as well as a technical discussion of intelligence.
