by Martin Ottenheimer
 

See All Formats & Editions

Forbidden Relative challenges the belief-widely held in the United States-that legislation against marriage between first cousins is based on a biological risk to offspring. In fact, its author maintains, the U.S. prohibition against such unions originated largely because of the belief that it would promote more rapid assimilation of immigrants.
