A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History is a 2014 book by Nicholas Wade.

The book argues that new genetic evidence strongly supports the existence of different races. It is also argued that genetic evidence supports that evolution has had a strong effect on different human groups during the last 30 000 years. This is argued to have caused different effects on human groups who have lived in different regions.

The book states that genetic studies have examined how the genetics of different groups differ from one another. Such studies are stated to have shown that different human groups differ regarding gene groups involved in numerous different areas including the nervous system and cognition.

Furthermore, it is argued that it is very likely that such evolutionary changes have continued also after the emergence of civilizations and up to this day. Historical processes such as the industrial revolution is argued to likely have been influenced by genetic changes in populations in the preceding centuries.
