While the core of this book establishes the relationship between eugenics and education specifically, it is also about the deeper ideological roots that direct Western thinking altogether. Furthermore, the use of concepts like collective memory and historically directed popular culture theory provides a model for investigating the relationship between ideology and culture generally.
