I just finished reading chapter 9 of Jonathan Haidt's new book "The Righteous Mind". He will send it to you if you ask him at: haidt at virginia dot edu. Very very interesting. So much so that I went out and bought the book at the bookstore.

I leafed through and I really agree with the descriptive parts- if not the prescriptive ones! That's so far, because I still have to read the whole thing.

Chapter 9 discusses the possible role of group selection in the evolution of human morality, with lots of footnotes, and since I am no expert, I would just love to have a critical review of that chapter by Professor Dawkins and his colleagues. Please!!!
