In Born That Way, William Wright takes us on a fascinating, comprehensive journey into the new world of genetic research and molecular biology to show us the work that has been done during the last half century: how the remarkable findings about gene behavior are overturning existing theories and demolishing assumptions upon which fifty years of psychological thought had been based. He writes not only about twin and adoption studies that measure and compare individuals to establish a genetic influence, but about the corroborating research in molecular biology that underlines the links between genes and personality
The Von Bülow affair by William Wright( Book )

13 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 1,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a fascinating behind-the-scenes account of the most publicized trial of the decade -- a trial that was not only front-page news but was televised in its entirety. In a wealth of material never before published, William Wright gives us the step-by-step story of the events that led to the conviction of Claus Von Bülow for the attempted murder of his wife, Sunny. It is all here: the results of interviews with Sunny's children, her mother, her close friends, and her maid, and a long, exclusive interview with Claus himself. We are given every aspect of the trial from testimony to public reaction. The Von Bülow Affair is a riveting portrayal of a case that captured everyone's imagination, and at the same time a dramatic picture of high society at its highest and lowest levels. - Jacket flap

Harvard's secret court : the savage 1920 purge of campus homosexuals by William Wright( Book )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2002, a researcher for The Harvard Crimson came across a restricted archive labeled "Secret Court Files, 1920." The mystery he uncovered involved a tragic scandal in which Harvard University secretly put a dozen students on trial for homosexuality and then systematically and persistently tried to ruin their lives. In May of 1920, Cyril Wilcox, a freshman suspended from Harvard, was found sprawled dead on his bed, his room filled with gas--a suicide. The note he left behind revealed his secret life as part of a circle of (cut "young") homosexual students. The resulting witch hunt and the lives it cost remains one of the most shameful episodes in the history of America's premiere university. Supported by legendary Harvard President Lawrence Lowell, Harvard conducted its investigation in secrecy. Several students committed suicide; others had their lives destroyed by an ongoing effort on the part of Harvard to destroy their reputations. Harvard's Secret Court is a deeply moving indictment of the human toll of intolerance and the horrors of injustice that can result when a powerful institution loses its balance
