Gina Maranto (au). Would-be parents have dreamed of producing “perfect” children & have taken steps to secure the looks, gender, & brainpower of their offspring. Maranto traces the history of society’s attempts to control human destiny by regulating birth outcomes. She draws together material from many fields to provide a riveting account of how the perfecting impulse has colored Western social & political thought & history. She explores how the development of birth technologies, from artificial insemination in the 1800s to in vitro fertilization in the 1970s, was carried out by scientists who foresaw the eugenical potential of manipulating sperm, eggs, & embryos.
