Description

Analyses the photographs that helped strengthen as well as bring down the Eugenics Movement. Concentrating mainly on developments in Britain, the USA and Nazi Germany, this book argues that photography, as the most powerful visual medium of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, was vital to the Eugenics Movement's success.
