Sex, Race and Science: Eugenics in the Deep South


Exploring the theory and practice of eugenics in the American South, this study shows how the quest for "strong bloodlines" expressed itself in state laws and public policies from the Progressive era through World War II. The author shows how the seemingly broad-based eugenics movement was in fact a series of distinct campaigns by small groups of determined individuals for legislation at the state level.
