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 19th century to its most recent manifestation within the field of genetic engineering. Dealing seriously and objectively with the development of human genetics as a scientific and medical discipline, it also contains stories of competition and conflict among scientists who have dominated the field.
