1.0 out of 5 stars Just plain ignorant book 13 Jan. 2015
By Critical Reviewer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Quite honestly, this text distorts the history of racial research in the worst way possible: by not even giving the opposing side a fair light.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for eugenics information 24 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was a student of Dr. Tucker when I purchased this book for a course he taught in 1998. I did not realize then, as I do now, how important it is to understand how the eugenics movement in Germany and the U.S. had a profound effect on the involuntary sterilization of the mentally disabled. I believe the history of the eugenics movement must be reviewed in light of Tipper Gore's recommendations for changes in community mental health care through PACT programs which the National Aliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) is now proposing to state legislators. The PACT model is essentially a biomedical model, with specific social control features, deciding the fate of people with severe mental illnesses. The eugenics movement resulting in the involuntary sterilization of the "feeble minded" for over a half century, is hauntingly resonant of this proposed plan.
