it was amazing
Read from October 27 to November 30, 2010

Finally finished this after a hiatus. I was already familiar with American Eugenics and had read The Black Stork previously. I had no idea, however, how deep and quacky eugenics went. If only eugenics could be written off as junk science, but it became the ideology of Nazi Germany. The cooperation and collaboration between US and Nazi researchers, especially after the US side knew what was going on, is frightening. Unfortunately, Americans still love junk science today.

The book was actually easy to read, but repetitive in places which didn't bother me that much. This is a very important, yet ultimately depressing, work. This really isn't a good review, but I'm lousy at writing things up.
