How to Curb the Fertility of the Unfit: The Feeble Minded in Edwardian Britain.
Barker, David
Oxford Review of Education, v9 n3 p197-211 1983

Four strategies to prevent the unfit from reproducing--regulation, birth control, sterilization, and segregation--are discussed as well as the political and social climate in which eugenics developed.
