RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 37688339 LA English T1 Murderous science : elimination by scientific selection of Jews, Gypsies, and others in Germany, 1933-1945 A1 Müller-Hill, Benno,, PB Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press PP Plainview, N.Y. YR 1998 SN 0879695315 9780879695316 AB "In the 1920s and 1930s, advocates for eugenics made claims that genes influenced human behavior, but with no valid evidence from studies of the genome itself. To help realize their utopian dreams, they turned to politics - most successfully in Germany where the Nazis adopted their ideas. But the German eugenicists paid a price for this support - the need to justify and promote the Nazis' violent anti-semitism." "In this book, the distinguished German geneticist Benno Muller-Hill documents the terrible collaboration which ended in the mass murder of millions, and warns against the misuse today of newly emerging knowledge about human heredity. In an accompanying essay, Nobel Laureate James D. Watson, an architect of this new era of genetics, vividly describes a recent visit to Berlin and his impressions of the legacy of eugenics in German science."--BOOK JACKET.
