Future human evolution : eugenics in the twenty-first century by John Glad( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 1,550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evolutionary selection has been radically relaxed in the human species as a result of the development of civilization, science in general, and medicine in particular. While these advances have hugely benefited current populations, they have to a significant degree released the species from the biological process which created it and maintains its viability. Formerly, natural selection took place largely as a result of differential mortality, but now that most people survive well beyond their child bearing years, selection is determined largely by differential fertility. Aside from genetic illnesses, this new selection is also characterized by a negative correlation between fertility and intelligencethe core of eugenic concern for over a century. Eugenics views itself as the fourth leg of the chair of civilization, the other three being a) a thrifty expenditure of natural resources, b) mitigation of environmental pollution, and c) maintenance of a human population not exceeding the planets carrying capacity. Eugenics, which can be thought of as human ecology, is thus part and parcel of the environmental movement. Humanity is defined, not as the totality of the currently living population, but as the number of people who will potentially ever live. This is a book about the struggle for human rights and parental responsibility

Jewish eugenics by John Glad( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eugenics (human ecology) has always understood itself to be part of the struggle for human rights--those of future generations. Rejecting absolutely all taboos, John Glad here lays out the eugenic thrust of traditional Jewish culture and shows how Zionism itself was conceived as a grand eugenic plan."--Page 4 of cover

Twentieth century Russian poetry : silver and steel : an anthology by Yevgeny Aleksandrovich Yevtushenko( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This massive tome effectively captures the spirit and passion of Russian poetry in this century. Yevtushenko provides context by dividing the text into four clearly delineated sections and introducing each poet with an extensive preface; in addition, important terms are cross-referenced to a helpful glossary. While wide-ranging, the anthology remains judicious in its selection, offering outpourings from giants like Mandelstam or Akhmatova and perhaps a single poem from lesser lights. --Library Journal
