Paul A. Hanebrink, Slavic Review (Winter 2012)

"The contributors to this volume show collectively that connections between state building and health policy, hygiene, and eugenics develop differently in a particular regional context like southeastern Europe. Second, the historians who present their fi ndings here insist that medical and technical aspects of debates around issues of social hygiene, health policy, or eugenics must be taken seriously in their own right, before these debates can be understood in larger political and ideological contexts. These pleas for disciplinary and regional specifi city make this an especially exciting and thought-provoking volume."
