Summary
Homo Sapiens 1900 is a stunning exploration of the history of eugenics, race hygiene and the quest to improve the human race.Emerging at the turn of the century, eugenic movements spawned government sanctioned research projects, whose stated goals were the improvement of the human species through biological means - including selective breeding, sterilization, and the elimination of all 'degenerate' members of society.Unearthing startling archival footage and long-hidden documents, Homo Sapiens 1900 examines the social and political undercurrents that helped generate the often-feverish quest to build a superior race. In the United States the American Eugenics Society promoted the ratification of the world's first sterilization law, while in Germany and the Soviet Union, in their efforts to build utopian societies, developed their own horrific applications
