Summary:
Edwin Black is a dangerous man. He tells us things we don't want to hear, like, for instance, this: "The scientific rationales that drove killer doctors at Auschwitz were first concocted on Long Island." His groundbreaking War Against the Weak, Eugenics and America's Campaign to Create a Master Race... is a scary and necessary book.

Intro Text
War Against the Weak, originally published in 2003, assembles the gripping story of America's decades-long campaign to create a white, Nordic master race through a sham science called eugenics. Some 60,000 Americans were forcibly sterilized in eugenic campaigns organized by American corporate philanthropic organizations such as the Carnegie Institution and the Rockefeller Foundation. The program was then transplanted to Germany where the Rockefeller Foundation and American eugenicists founded and funded Nazi eugenics. To assemble War Against the Weak, Black headed a team of some 50 researchers, working in dozens of archives in four countries, and accumulating some 50,000 documents. Hailed as a "gripping account" by historian Paul Weindling and "astonishing" by Abraham Foxman, War Against the Weak launched September 7, 2003. The New York Times called the book "chilling," Esquire called it "scary and necessary," and Library Journal dubbed it a "bombshell." War Against the Weak received the World Affairs Council's award for Best Book of 2003 for International Human Affairs. The 2012 Expanded Edition contains new chapters, as well as photos and documentation.
