Abstract:

"There is a gaping hole in Holocaust history. Between Adolf Hitler and Joseph Mengele there was a hierarchy of scientists who were responsible for the infamous racial policies of the Third Reich. These scientists, doctors, and legislators enjoyed prestigious positions in the various institutions within Hitler's Germany. To be more precise, the ghastly experiments credited to Mengele were ordered by these individuals. Yet, many of these doctors and scientists were set free after being captured by the Allies. Previously unpublished manuscripts, correspondence, and conveniently forgotten publications reveal political relationships as well as shared scientific convictions between high-profile American progressives, British Fabian socialists, and their Germany counterparts. The mounting evidence points to the long-standing designs and machinations of 'scientific racism', a still poorly understood aspect of history. This book documents the hundred year history of 'scientific racism' from its initial intentions to create 'a race of masters, ' to its catastrophic culmination in Hitler's Germany. The political prejudices that fueled 'scientific racism' then are still critically relevant today. A thorough understanding of this movement is in order"--Taken from back cover.
