How Ethical Systems Change: Eugenics, the Final Solution, Bioethics, Paperback Book

How Ethical Systems Change: Eugenics, the Final Solution, Bioethics Paperback

Part of the Framing 21st Century Social Issues series

Description

Mandatory sterilization laws enacted in dozens of states coast-to-coast and approved by the U.S.

Supreme Court formed the initial pillar for what became the Final Solution.

Following WWII, there was renewed interest in a more inclusive view of social worth and the autonomy of the individual.

Social movements were launched to secure broad-based revisions in civil and human rights.

This book is based on a hugely popular undergraduate course taught at the University of Texas, and is ideal for those interested in science-based policy, the social construction of social worth, social problems, and social movements.

This book is an excerpt from a larger text, Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Decides?, http://www.routledge.com/9780415892476/
