Product Details

Praise

“This book is terrifying and sends shivers down one’s spine … With a methodical, surgical but also indignant pen, André Pichot painstakingly tracks these ordinary crimes of [eugenics] … One of the great merits of his work is that it calls on us for a spirit of critical vigilance.”—Telerama

“André Pichot’s work has the merit of gathering together a great deal of information on the forgotten, ‘uncomfortable’, massive international presence [of eugenics].”—Le Monde

“The historian of science André Pichot shows here the extent to which [Darwin and Hitler] profoundly marked social and political history … A welcome warning against the dream of purity in social matters.”—Le Nouvelle Economiste

“André Pichot is an excellent historian … Pichot analyses [this complex history of eugenics] with finesse. He destroys the false ideas, the ‘fables’ which were completely invented to justify a priori ideas. A very rich book, which is based on abundant documentation.”—Etudes
