  • Very interesting and very informative I have read one other book about eugenics, so some of the information contained in this book was not new to me, but still just as appalling The author discusses negative eugenics the segregation and sterilization of the unfit and positive eugenics the promotion of marriage and motherhood of the white middle class for the betterment of the race.A couple of my favorite outrageous quotes The aggressive, overactive wife was likely to be a discontented partner, w [...]


  • We read this in my Gender and Science course It is the most compelling book that I ve read on eugenics and that s saying something The sharper focus on gender, race, and sexuality is refreshing as is the stronger attention to public reactions to eugenics.Really, my only complaint about the book is that the title makes the book sound wide reaching than the content actually is The book focuses mainly on California which, admittedly, was a major bellwether for eugenics in the US, and whose sterili [...]


  • By far my favorite book about the history of Eugenics It is an approachable text that clearly outlines many of the factors which led to the eugenic movement in the 20th century Further, she shows how eugenics is still alive and well in many respects with conservative organizations that push for only fit or proper families A must read for anyone interested in history, race, sexuality, or modern politics.


  • Contains a very useful account of the sterilization movement in California, and a thoughtful accounting of how it reflected changing sexual s and was enabled by the advancing technology of sterilization Not much transnational context.


  • A rather plodding analysis of otherwise fascinating source material Kline tends to repeat herself, making and remaking the same point ad nauseam, but the untold history of California s eugenics movement is riveting enough to make up for the shortcomings in the writing itself.
