Description

Maria Sophia Quine demystifies the population policies of fascist regimes by looking at them in the wider context of how societies in general reacted to the profound economic changes brought by industrialization. Population Politics in Twentieth Century Europe:

* provides an original, comparative treatment of European population policies

* gives the historical background to twentieth-century population policies

* considers topics such as racism and sexism in Nazi ideology, Eugenics in England, family allowance schemes in France, and sterilization

* synthesizes the latest research in different fields and countries.

Sills, Social Science Research Council, New York

'An illuminating introduction to a crucial, and still unresolved, set of historical issues.' - Paul Weindling, English Historical Review, November 1997
