A classic reprint. The Ancient Greeks and early Romans believed that all human qualities were rooted in heredity, and that the quality of national stock had to be preserved at all costs. In short, they had a more intelligent attitude concerning the importance of human breeding than most contemporary Western societies. CONTENTS include quotations about the importance of quality breeding from classical authors ranging from Homer, Lycurgus and Theognis, to Xenophon, Euripides, Plato, Socrates, Aristotle and Plutarch. Hardback, 75 ppd.
