"The Bell Curve" and Carrie Buck: Eugenics Revisited.
Smith, J. David
Mental Retardation, v33 n1 p60-61 Feb 1995
The 1994 publication of "The Bell Curve" by R. Herrnstein and C. Murray is compared to other examples of eugenic principles, including the sterilization of "feebleminded" Carrie Buck, family degeneracy studies focusing on lower class Caucasian families, and other works that view the poorest and least educated members of society as problems for social control.
