In 2020, Francis Galton’s name was removed from University College London buildings. The ‘father of eugenics’ had authored theories of selective procreation used to justify racism and genocide. Discussing his book Control: The Dark History and Troubling Present of Eugenics, geneticist Adam Rutherford examines its continuing effects on people’s lives. His previous nonfiction blockbusters include The Book of Humans and How to Argue with a Racist.
