Black, Edwin

SUMMARY

"Groundbreaking... chilling... War Against the Weak is a scary and necessary book." "Fierce, compelling... well told and extraordinarily sad... a prodigious feat of reporting." In War Against the Weak, award-winning investigative journalist Edwin Black connects the crimes of the Nazis to a pseudoscientific American movement of the early twentieth century called eugenics. Based on selective breeding of human beings, eugenics began in laboratories on Long Island but ended in the concentration camps of Nazi Germany. Ultimately, over 60,000 "unfit" Americans were coercively sterilized, a third of them after Nuremberg declared such practices crimes against humanity. This is a timely and shocking chronicle of bad science at its worst-which holds important lessons for the impending genetic age. "Chilling... prompt[s] us to wonder what in medical genetics and biotechnology we are taking socially and morally for granted today that our descendants might indict us for tomorrow." "Ambitious... richly detailed... a serious, thoroughly documented study... [that] spans 150 years and reaches into the archives of four countries." "Edwin Black has written what may well be the best book ever published about the American eugenics movement and the horrific events it spawned."Black, Edwin is the author of 'War Against The Weak Eugenics And America's Campaign To Create A Master Race' with ISBN 9781568583211 and ISBN 1568583214.
