I found this book to be very honest in the fact that not many people know this history. This is a very well written book that discusses the sterolization that took place within the United States through the stories of the people that suffered from it. A very interesting read for those who would like to know more about this history and eugenics.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

There is a big problem with 'Better for All the World : The 'Secret' History of Forced Sterilization and America's Quest for Racial Purity.' That is, of course, that the history of forced sterilization in America is no secret. Many outstanding scholars have done extensive research and brilliant contributions in this area: Black, Lombardo, Carlson, Kevles, etc. Bruinius seems to be determined to ignore most of their work, an attitude that is incredibly arrogant, not to mention intellectually dishonest.Was this review helpful?
