Simply put, eugenics was the science of improving human breeding based upon theories of heredity. It was a novel way of applying science to the regulation of sexual reproduction in the lateth and 20th centuries. Eugenicists proposed that this new science, based on Lamarckian or Mendelian theories of heredity, could be used to improve the quality of humans. Early scholars claimed that the eugenic movement ended in the s and s once the general public became aware of past Nazi abuses of eugenics and as advances in genetic science debunked the science of eugenics. More recently, by demonstrating that eugenic ideas and language were shared by a wide variety of social groups and were put into practice in a variety of ways well into the s and s, historians have broadened the scope of what we can label eugenic endeavors; reinterpreted the seeming inconsistencies in eugenicists' long-term careers; and described the persistence of eugenic efforts well.
