Such ideas as aristocracy, hereditary rights, and good breeding have for years been out of favour. It remains true, nevertheless, that the difference between one man and another is due as much to breeding as to background.

In this study of heredity a past general secretary of the Eugenics Society, now working for the Medical Research Council, outlines our present knowledge about the subject and takes a look into the future. Wherever material environment improves, hereditary differences become more and more important.

Better education and more efficient health services, by eliminating needless wastage, are already beginning to underline inequalities in genetic endowment. For, clearly, men are not born equal.
