Anarchism and Eugenics

Richard Cleminson

Manchester University Press

This chapter presents the central problematic of the book: the apparent paradox of anarchism having provided a forum for the reception of eugenics. It discusses the main issues that such a contention gives rise to, sets out the methodology and theoretical framework to be followed and places anarchism and eugenics within the historiography of both movements from the late nineteenth century onwards.

Keywords:   Anarchism, eugenics, neo-Malthusianism, historiography
