It is just loaded with information about what happened as concerns the origins of IQ testing, the institutionaliztion and sterilization of the disabled (even some who technically were not disabled but just poor), and some other unethical practices that happened on our shores that were edging close to those. In 2001 Kevles was awarded the Sarton Medal by the History of Science Society. Recently he has been working on a history of the uses of intellectual property in relation to the life sciences from the eighteenth century to the present.
Yet among the audience for the creed, a climate of receptivity to eugenic ideas had already been forming, in both the United States and Britain.

Eugenics, the Genome, and Human Rights.
Daniel Kevles traces the study and practice of eugenics--the science of "improving" the human species by exploiting theories of heredity--from its inception in the late nineteenth century to its most recent manifestation within the field of genetic engineering. It is rich in narrative, anecdote, attention to human detail, and stories of competition among scientists who have dominated the field.
