Summary
By the widely celebrated New York Times best selling author of Last Call, the powerful, definitive, and timely account of how the rise of eugenics helped America close the immigration door to 'inferiors' in the 1920s. A forgotten, dark chapter of American history with implications for the current day, it tells the story of the scientists who argued that certain nationalities were inherently inferior, providing the intellectual justification for the harshest immigration law in American history
