The BEST book on the history of eugenics, race theory, and historic and modern racism. Explains human evolution (and Darwinian evolution, for that matter) in a clear, scientific, and irrefutable way. Society would benefit greatly if this book was required reading for all high school students. Know a racist or evolution skeptic? Don't just throw a book at them, insist they read this one! Highly recommended!
