Product Overview

Using sources ranging from horse-breeding manuals to eugenics treatises, natural history tables to railway surveys, and novels to personal diaries, and drawing on the work of figures as diverse as Thorstein Veblen, Jack London, Edith Wharton, William James, and Luther Burbank, this edition uses David Starr Jordan--naturalist, poet, eugenicist, and educator--as a touchstone for deciphering the mode of rationality that genetics superseded.
