Here in Brazil, I tried to read this former american best-seller, published first in 1911.Yes, it was a college text-book, in medicine, but it has not only eugenics/racist believes, but also frauds.To example, it claims that Chlorosis, Cerebral Palsy of Infancy(polio), Hysteria, Psoriasis, Cretinism, Goitre, etc. as caused by racial defects. The real valor of this book is to see how racist and falase was eugenics, now called ecology.This book was published using money and support of Carnegie Institution, now an ecological institution. The ediction that I tried to read had 218 pages.The other reviewer claimed that this trash-book shows how to improve this world.Well, the other reviewer didn't told how fraud, racism and prejudices can improve the world. This trash-book has some chapters:
Chapter I Eugenics: Its nature, importance and aims.
Chapter II The method of eugenics
Chapter III The inheritance of family traits.
