Who was the scientific progenitor of eugenic thought? Amir Teicher challenges the preoccupation with Darwin's eugenic legacy by uncovering the extent to which Gregor Mendel's theory of heredity became crucial in the formation - and radicalization - of eugenic ideas. Through a compelling analysis of the entrenchment of genetic thinking in the social and political policies in Germany between 1900 and 1948, Teicher exposes how Mendelian heredity became saturated with cultural meaning, fed racial anxieties, reshaped the ideal of the purification of the German national body and ultimately defined eugenic programs. Drawing on scientific manuscripts and memoirs, bureaucratic correspondence, court records, school notebooks and Hitler's table talk as well as popular plays and films, Social Mendelism presents a new paradigm for understanding links between genetics and racism, and between biological and social thought.

Mendelism is generally connected with eugenics, and the students are routinely
warned against anything as “undemocratic” (Reuter, op. cit., p. 418) as eugenics.

Eugenics was a term coined in 1883 to name the scientific and social theory which advocated "race improvement" through selective human breeding. In Europe and the United States the eugenics movement found many supporters before it was finally discredited by its association with the racist ideology of Nazi Germany. Examining for the first time how eugenics was taken up by scientists and social reformers in Latin America, Nancy Leys Stepan compares the eugenics movements in Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina with the more familiar cases of Britain, the United States, and Germany.

Another feature of Mendelism is the phenomenon of segregation of the

Gregor Johann Mendel, the founder of genetics, was actively read and discussed in Bohemia and Moravia in the period after 1900. For the first time, this volume presents a collection of relevant papers that deal with the reception of Mendelism from the 're-discovery' of Mendel's laws until the establishment of genetics (the science of heredity) as an independent area of biological research in 1930s. The selected papers also reveal the influence and incorporation of science of genetics in various scientific, social and political disputes. Especially interesting are the parallel German and Slavic discussions of genetics in Bohemia and Moravia. In addition to a number of well-known authors, the book presents for the first time contributions of both Czech and German authors from the territories of Bohemia and Moravia. In their day, all these persons contributed to the reception of Mendelism and development of genetics. All authors are also introduced by brief biographies. Works published originally in German are kept in their original language. Works written in Czech are translated into English.
