Daniel Kevles traces the study and practice of eugenics--the science of "improving" the human species by exploiting theories of heredity--from its inception in the late nineteenth century to its most recent manifestation within the field of genetic engineering. It is rich in narrative, anecdote, attention to human detail, and stories of competition among scientists who have dominated the field.

"You read with a rising sense of despair and outrage, and you finish it as if awakening from a nightmare only Kafka could have conceived."--Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times David Baltimore won the Nobel Prize in medicine in 1975. Known as a wunderkind in the field of immunology, he rose quickly through the ranks of the scientific community to become the president of the distinguished Rockefeller University. Less than a year and a half later, Baltimore resigned from his presidency, citing the personal toll of fighting a long battle over an allegedly fraudulent paper he had collaborated on in 1986 while at MIT. From the beginning, the Baltimore case provided a moveable feast for those eager to hold science more accountable to the public that subsidizes its research. Did Baltimore stonewall a legitimate government inquiry? Or was he the victim of witch hunters? The Baltimore Case tells the complete story of this complex affair, reminding us how important the issues of government oversight and scientific integrity have become in a culture in which increasingly complicated technology widens the divide between scientists and society.

Excerpt from Genie und Vererbung Die Bucherei hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, einerseits dem deutschen Publikum die Hauptwerke der auslandischen Philosophie und Soziologie in guten Ubersetzungen nahezubringen, andererseits auch wertvolle deutsche Originalarbeiten in ihren Rahmen aufzunehmen. Wie ihr Erscheinen von den Fachgenossen aufgenommen wurde, zeigt eine Zuschirift Rudolf Euckens der dem Verleger folgendermassen schreibt: "Ich wunsche von Herzen Gluck zu den bedeutenden wissenschaftlichen Unternehmungen, die sie beginnen. Ich glaube, dass hier in Wahrheit eine Lucke besteht, welche dringend der Ausfullung bedarf: wir Deutschen haben zu wenig Beziehung zu den inneren geistigen Bewegungen der anderen Kulturvolker, und wir konnten daraus doch manches gewinnen." Es sollen ausser deutschen Philosophen zunachst die bedeutendsten Vertreter der auslandischen Philosophie mit charakteristischen Werken zu Worte kommen, daneben wird Ruck sieht darauf genommen, dass nicht nur fur den Fachmann interessante Werke zur Verdeutschung kommen, sondern auch solche, die fur ein grosseres philosophisch und soziologisch interessiertes Publikum Wert haben. Die beste Auskunft uber Plan und Ab sichten des Unternehmens gibt ein Blick auf die Titel der schon erschienenen und vorbereiteten Bande. Ein ausfuhrlicher Spezialprospekt uber die Gebiete Philosophie-Soziologie steht jederzeit umsonst zu Diensten.

This magnificent account of the coming of age of physics in America has been heralded as the best introduction to the history of science in the United States. Unsurpassed in its breadth and literary style, Kevles's account portrays the brilliant scientists who became a powerful force in bringing the world into a revolutionary new era. The book ranges widely as it links these exciting developments to the social, cultural, and political changes that occurred from the post-Civil War years to the present. Throughout, Kevles keeps his eye on the central question of how an avowedly elitist enterprise grew and prospered in a democratic culture. In this new edition, the author has brought the story up to date by providing an extensive, authoritative, and colorful account of the Superconducting Super Collider, from its origins in the international competition and intellectual needs of high-energy particle physics, through its establishment as a multibillion-dollar project, to its termination, in 1993, as a result of angry opposition within the American physics community and the Congress.

The ethical conduct of research has become an area of great concern on university campuses across the nation. The cases and other materials in this book are designed to foster discussion of research ethics issues in the university classroom. The materials selected for inclusion here can speak to people in all disciplines, though the cases are drawn from biology, psychology, and history. They cover such topics as plagiarism, confidentiality, conflict of interest, fraud and misconduct, access to research materials, the obligations of mentors and teachers, the reporting of data, and the participation of human and animal subjects in research. Specific pedagogical suggestions for many of the cases are provided in the instructional notes. In addition, Research Ethics provides discussions of ethical theory and pedagogy. An annotated bibliography will help instructors identify resources to use as supplements to cases, assist readers who are developing courses in research ethics, and aid further research on the subject.

When the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology, Human Heredity and Eugenics opened its doors in 1927, it could rely on wide political approval. In 1933 the institute and its founding director Eugen Fischer came under pressure to adjust, which they were able to ward off through Selbstgleichschaltung (auto-coordination). The Third Reich brought about a mutual beneficial servicing of science and politics. With their research into hereditary health and racial policies the institute’s employees provided the Brownshirt rulers with legitimating grounds. This volume traces the history of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology, Human Heredity and Eugenics between democracy and dictatorship. Attention is turned to the haunting transformation of the research program, the institute’s integration into the national and international science panorama, and its relationship to the ruling power. The volume also confronts the institute’s interconnection to the political crimes of Nazi Germany terminating in bestial medical crimes.
