Faces of Degeneration: A European Disorder, c.1848-1918 by Daniel Pick

In this work, Daniel Pick explores the conception and descent of a language of degeneration from c. 1848 to c. 1918, with particular reference to France, Italy and England. Drawing on extensive primary literature in medico-psychiatry, criminal anthropology, social criticism and the novel, the author demonstrates how in the shadows of evolutionary naturalism, new images and theories of atavism, 'degenerescence' and socio-biological decline emerged in European culture and politics.
